I am slowly realizing how great linux is and how far it has come in the past two years since I became curious.
It is not the be all or end all of operating systems, but it certainly has lots of functionality. I don't think, in the next short while, I could call myself a senior administrator.
I do have my frustrations with linux, because of the open-ness. Yes, because of that.
Here is what I would like to see.
All messages and codes standardized with a key. For example, enumerate the list of kernel messages and prefix them with **kern0001, kern0002**, etc.
When a message or code is no longer used, just don't reuse the prefix, but save it for future. And in the current kernel, just link in the codes that are used. Use these codes to refer to recovery or other documentation. Since the code will be language independent, an explanation of, for example, kernxxxx would be written up in the target user's language, be it any one of the many languages supported. Obsolete prefix codes would not be reused if a newer version of a kernel no longer required that message and associated code. The code becomes the key to the message.
It would also help for adding new language support.
Thanks one of my ideas.
