You should have no guilt. In Linux, it sometimes takes time to figure out what questions to ask.
AND--you get a gold star for saying "Thank you".

What is going on, simple. Have you ever played King of the hill when you were a child?
There may be 12 children at different levels of the hill, but only the one who thinks he/she is above everybody else, is the target.
I stepped up to the plate to bring someone back down to earth to face reality. That someone put up a hell of a fight trying to stay up on that pedestal.
Empires crumble
Governing nations fall
History will repeat itself

If you go back and read my prior posts, you'll find I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong, (and I will be wrong again). Go ahead, hurt me. "Sticks & Stones"

Easy there, big guy--noone wants to hurt you....
Or were you just trying to "one-up" my amateurish humor??

I have to keep my mouth shut because I don't really know how a kernel would react to the mounting of the 255th primary partition.

cfdisk, sfdisk, fdisk, gparted, QTparted, Parted Magic, maintainers and authors of every partitioning tool in Linux are going to be busy for the next 10 years at least to convert their codes if the 255 primary partitions ever catch on. Microsoft, BSD and Solaris can then amend their systems to reside at end of the hard disk. Every PC operating system will have utilies and programs to create partitions and format filing systems so we could have a common standard not achieveable previously.

If the idea doesn't catch on or is ignored by all operating systems then the software is just another outcast, would it not?
