Planning for an article

I read Nat Friedman's blog entry on January 28th. His thoughts there make me think about a new GUI/Desktop philosophy: 'Unixing the Desktop', mainly distinguished by splitting up applications, generating message ports and connecting their inputs/outputs, and -in other side but extremely attached to this- generating, indexing, retrieving and encapsultaing lot of information about what user has (files) and does (applications behaviour).

Linux kernel 2.6

I'm planning to go back to 2.4 kernel, since I'm not used to about the managing of devices of 2.6. Im specially frustrated about (my lack of knowledge of) USB handling and CD burn. I also got the sensation that the apps in charge of doing this aren't ported yet. Any pointer would be interesting.
