    Yeah, I don't understand that complaint at all. ...

    Yeah, I don't understand that complaint at all. I prefer copyleft myself, but I'm still happy to use software licensed Apache, BSD, or MIT. Anything open source trumps proprietary by a million...
  2. Hey, if it's open source and open specification...

    Hey, if it's open source and open specification then it sure beats something like Swift or even Java. I use Java, I don't completely hate it. But I don't like that, for example, the Apache Harmony...
  3. Most of what they contain isn't obsolete. ...

    Most of what they contain isn't obsolete. systemd is still pid one. It still uses parallel launching. It still uses files and sockets for communication. You can still change which components are...

    There are dozens of such articles. Lennart Poettering is the lead developer for systemd, and his own blog is a good starting point: http://0pointer.net/blog/archives.html

    I think his initial...

    Seconded. I've upgraded Fedora using fedup without problems. I've used the Ubuntu software center (GUI tool) to upgrade Ubuntu many times without ever having a problem. One upgrade left me with...
  6. Good points, thanks.

    Good points, thanks.
  7. Actually, the number of bug reports and questions...

    Actually, the number of bug reports and questions about a Linux distribution is probably the best indicator of popularity we have. No Linux distribution is flawless. There are many websites and...

    Since the people who hate systemd have yet to be convinced, I wanted to bring up most of the common objections to systemd and counter them. It's probably a waste of time.



    Good point. I...

    Common systemd criticisms and my responses:

    1. "I'm already comfortable with init or upstart and I don't want to learn anything different no matter what it is, who wrote it, what benefits it has,...

    We're going to have another flame war about systemd? Really?
    http://0pointer.net/blog/archives.html

    If you start at the bottom and work your way up, Poettering lays out the reasons the systemd...

    I used it on VoidLinux in 2013 and Fedora all year 2014 and so far in 2015 without a hiccup. (Funnily enough, the VoidLinux developer doesn't like systemd - but he made it work flawlessly when I ran...
  12. I have Ubuntu on my primary desktop and Fedora on...

    I have Ubuntu on my primary desktop and Fedora on my work laptop. Both have been fine, except Ubuntu 14.10 kept crashing spontaneously with no information left in syslog, kern.log, or anywhere else....
  13. Seconded. I've been annoyed that new Intel...

    Seconded. I've been annoyed that new Intel laptops with 1080p screens are available in the $600-$800 price point and new AMD laptops with 1080p screens are in the $1100+ range if you can find them...

    I know this is going to sound elitist and compassionate at the same time, but you can't blame a toddler for not understanding algebra. The people who live their lives around tablets, smart phones,...

    $1850.

    To me, one of the biggest advantages of free and open source software is that it makes computing more accessible to people with less money. I have nothing against the Librem Laptop, and I...

    All of that would be great news, but remember:

    1. Intel isn't standing still. It does no good to hit market in 2016 with something that can match Broadwell just in time for Cannonlake (Intel's...

    Well, one of the two primary authors of D, Walter Bright, wrote a C++ compiler. That's what motivated him to create something to replace C++. So it's not that much of a surprise that he knows...

    Interesting. I work on the web server side, and we have a lot of Java libraries written and compiled with Java 1.3 and 1.4 (aka Java 3 and 4 because of the funky naming snafu) humming along in...
  19. My understanding is that for some of the popular...

    My understanding is that for some of the popular 'core' distributions, especially Debian and Fedora, often the application developer is also a distribution developer. That's not the same as portage,...

    That's fine for us the power users, it's not going to win over the people sending a hundred billion dollars a year into Microsoft's coffers.

    I'm a nearly rabid Linux fan. But I'm also stubborn,...
