The open source software hotplug is part of the OpenStage telephones in this list.
An overview of all used open source software on OpenStage telephones you find in the category page.
Hotplug lets you plug in new devices and use them immediately. That means that users won't need to learn so much system administration; systems will at least partially autoconfigure themselves. Initially, hotplug included support for USB and PCI (Cardbus) devices, and could automatically configure some common network interfaces. Updated versions include IEEE 1394 (Firewire/i.Link) support and can download firmware to USB devices that need it. On mainframes, S/390 channel devices uses hotplugging to report device attach and other state change events. For laptops, newer kernels also include support for reporting docking station activity.
