The version number has been dealt with :)

Thanks to all for the comments.

Most of the TNOS code is portable and vice versa.

Believe it or not, I've thought of that, but I'm not sure the user
space threads model used by NOS would be conducive to it working in
a proper manner (or at all for that matter). I guess I don't know at
this point, certainly an interesting question though.

Honestly though, the guys (Thomas) that write this stuff are way
ahead of me (in experience) with writing these drivers, so if they
choose to make them in the form of kernel modules, then I'm happy
with that - they work and very well (for me anyways). So in a way,
it's one of those 'why reinvent the wheel' type situations.

Doesn't bother me - the stuff works (for me anyways).
