Hi Chester, and excellent article covering all the bases very well. And I am certainly glad that many moderns LDO regulators do work well with ceramic output capacitors. It had to go that way because as parts get smaller and PCBs more compact the PCB trace inductance drops and the distributed bypass capacitors on the rest of the chips reflect more directly back to the LDO output.
