  1. So far this is just an idea and who says it is...

    So far this is just an idea and who says it is the end of the world. I think it is (with emphasis on is) ludicrous that e.g. Mozilla releases a new version of Firefox and then Linux using people have...
  2. If you have it, why not directly include the link?

    If you have it, why not directly include the link?
  3. Very much the persons who don't do the work in a...

    Very much the persons who don't do the work in a distro, I imagine...
  4. This might be true (haven't seen any project yet...

    This might be true (haven't seen any project yet that has tried to make interchangeable parts that plug into systemd as init and services manager), but inclusion of systemd has still been decided...
  5. I'm not advocating anything of the sort. But this...

    I'm not advocating anything of the sort. But this "That doesn't mean though I agree with its design principles, since as a long-time developer, my experience has been that some design-decisions of...
  6. Nope, that is the elusive UNIX philosophy. That...

    Nope, that is the elusive UNIX philosophy. That doesn't say anything about the licensing on the software.
  7. Wasn't that something along the lines of "Show me...

    Wasn't that something along the lines of "Show me the code" and "Share the code"...? The rest is just fortunate, collateral bonus.
  8. Well, not to rain on your parade, but what good...

    Well, not to rain on your parade, but what good does ceaselessly criticizing systemd for existing* do? You might not like it, but who are you? What power do you hold within the various distro's? If...
  9. With which you've just written off the majority...

    With which you've just written off the majority of Windows users. Surfing the web should not be an exercise in dodging malware. Also, permissions are better or not, regardless of installed base.
  10. They can't use those other OSes easily either....

    They can't use those other OSes easily either. Most people get them preloaded and preconfigured and most of them (that I've met) are terrified of the prospect of something going wrong. They are...

    I'm ready to admit I was a stick in the mud and...

    I'm ready to admit I was a stick in the mud and at first didn't grok where Gnome was going. With Gnome 3.14 it finally clicked with me.

    I do still rely on a few legacy features (dash to dock,...
  12. Mir is not an alternative. Mir is a misguided...

    Mir is not an alternative. Mir is a misguided attempt to create a single vendor, defacto standard (yes, single vendor --> CLA).

    A few years back Canonical fancied themselves industry leaders and...

    2012 called. It wants its tired old FUD back.
  14. If that is the case, then it is bad and should be...

    If that is the case, then it is bad and should be fixed. Maybe that one of the maintainers can elaborate? I wasn't affected as I am on unstable and testing.
  15. Much ado about nothing

    My my, what a glorious piece of drama in this thread. So Manjaro stable users had to wait 14 days longer to get their update fix. Even without the bi-weekly updates they were still far ahead of the...
  16. I don't see that happening. Gnome, KDE and...

    I don't see that happening. Gnome, KDE and Enlightenment all have their Wayland compositor work nearly finished. The rest of the WM's could potentially use the new work done to make a libWeston, so...
  17. But it isn't just the default DE, is it? It is...

    But it isn't just the default DE, is it? It is also that big non-standard display stack that comes as a "bonus" with Unity 8. Single vendor solutions always end up being a problem in one way or...

    Why would that piss us off? We are walking in the sun my friend. The birds are chirping and the bees buzz around the flowers. Our systems get a much needed overhaul in the plumbing. Our Linux is now...

    For this one you need to put on an FSF hat. It has a greater degree of freedom, because the licensing on all parts of the kernel respect the four freedoms; you have the right to run all of it, to...
