Submission + - Fedora 16 will number user UIDs from 1000 (fedoraproject.org)

dotancohen writes: "Sharing users between Fedora and Debian-based distros just got a little easier. Beginning with Fedora 16, the Red-Hat based distro will number it's human user UIDs starting from 1000, as opposed to the old 500. Though this change is intended to facilitate interoperability with other distros, it risks breaking backward compatibility with older Fedora releases including the newly released Fedora 15."

Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
