thanks for the flowers, Sam, I really appreciate it!

but it would not have been possible without the help
from others, like you, in short, the community ...

I want to thank Enrico for doing a great job. sometimes
it might seem that his work is not so important than
mine, but I have to disagree. without his help I would
have spent at least half the time on userspace coding
instead of being able to focus on the kernel part ...

and of course, thanks to all those folks supporting us
by providing resources or feedback, ideas or feature
requests, or whatever to make this possible ...

yes, individuals come and go, but the idea and project
is in constant flux, always trying to push the limits
a little further ...

it's a pleasure to be part of it,
