I'm not talking about router setups. Try a regular desktop with IPv6 that runs virtual machines (VirtualBox, lxc) and has usb networking enabled so I can copy things to/from the phone ten times faster than over wifi. You can't have any of this with n-m. Also, http://bugs.debian.org/542095 -- this came up already before and after a brief flamewar has been promptly fixed. Yet since a few days ago the hard dependency on n-m is back. . Many thanks to new udev which makes the usb0 interface work out of the box, including hotplugging. -- 1KB // Yo momma uses IPv4!
