      Thats okay, but then YOU and everyone else who wants nothing to do with systemd can write your own seat manager to handle every needed use case and all of US will see if its compatible with what we're doing at that point of time as we keep pushing forward and experimenting with new ideas that at least TRY to make things better. Rather than just accepting the status quo as "good enough."

                  Not so sure! Since the introduction of plug-an-play hardware the difference between session manager and boot manager seems artificial..

                    I managed to make Xorg run as nobody:video with the nouveau driver. But the Intel driver is not working. It wants to become 'DRM master'. Weird.
