I shall correct myself to some degree. I just finished burning a
Ubuntu 5.04 Live CD and hotplugging my Lexar Jump Drive results in not
only a nice icon on the screen but opens a Nautilus window with the
Jump Drive directory contents. Very nice.
>From what I've seen both GNOME and KDE are getting this area of USB
hotplugging covered. Since I've seen it in KNOPPIX 3.9 and now Ubuntu,
I hope the tricks and techniques will filter into Testing in the near
future. Maybe I'm getting old and lazy, but I'm finding this automatic
stuff to be rather fun. Yet, I appreciate that with Debian I can still
get underneath it all and control it manually if need be.
