Don't worry, similar driver modification was proposed for inclusion – https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/10/... . But Linux maintainers didn't took it. Instead, original driver was adjusted to work with FTDIs ”bricked” by Windows driver: http://marc.info/?l=linux-usb&...

Linux is not fun anymore.

This also applies to libraries too. For example, anyone know what 'liborc', 'libnettle', 'libenchant', 'libmagic' or 'libcanberra' are without looking it up? I just picked these at random from /usr/lib. There are plenty more.

I knew the purpose of 4 out of 5 of those libraries. But I'm the distro developer. Ordinary user has no business in knowing what library does what.

NSA certainly bugs ethernet sockets – see http://images.dailytech.com/ni... .
The amount of destruction on motherboard teaches us a thing: GCHQ destroyed elements they KNOW could be used for storing data/snooping. So we say ”morons”, but they actually are ahead of us in spying. And they expect other intelligences to have similar capacities as NSA/GCHQ.

If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker to come along would destroy civilization.
