hey,

I just noticed the c++0x USE flag in all qt-* packages. I was wondering when will c++0x in the kernel. Apparently is better.

The kernel is written in C, not C++. So, I would guess it will be a while. :wink:

C++0x features are provided by the C++ compiler, not the kernel. You could use a kernel from before the standard was defined and still build C++0x code, if your compiler supports it. You should use a recent kernel for other reasons, but there is no need for the kernel developers to do anything to enable you to build code using C++0x features.
