  1. I'm generally against systemd in general, but...

    I'm generally against systemd in general, but that's a silly argument. The kernel itself also suffers from segfaults, crashes and freezes. Bugs happen, and showstopper systemd bugs should settle down...

    Broken? Arguably.

    Evil? I doubt it intended to be broken.
  3. No offense, but with your title of "Official...

    No offense, but with your title of "Official X.org Fanboy" on this forum, this sounds a bit like the pot calling the kettle black. By that I mean the concept of fanboy in general, not trying to claim...

    And this means what? At pretty much every company in existence, the policy is "do the work assigned to you, or leave". Are you claiming they've been forbidden to work on LLVM outside work hours too?
  5. I was under the impression that AMDs hybrid...

    I was under the impression that AMDs hybrid graphics was a form of Crossfire, which works differently to offloading (eg Nvidias Optimus/AMDs Enduro).

    And what about the other init daemons that aren't systemd?
  7. Have your cake and eat it too

    An admirable sentiment.


    That would break compatibility right there.

    How many complex devices that need firmware actually have open source firmware?
  9. Optical drives already are gone in many thin and...

    Optical drives already are gone in many thin and cheap laptops. And many already don't have VGA connectors. You don't need deprecation of the support from the chipset to stop using the features.

    Tell that to the KNOX bootloader on my S4 which prevents not only flashing custom ROMs, but downgrading to legitimate official past version ROMs.

    "Only" 30 seconds? ESD damage can happen the instant it makes contact.

    I'm against the non-init-system parts of systemd,...

    I'm against the non-init-system parts of systemd, and I'm capable of writing pretty good code (it's my job after all). That doesn't mean I have enough free time to reimplement yet another init...

    Why does an init system need to cache DNS in the first place?
  14. Didn't Khronos announce that the "next...

    Didn't Khronos announce that the "next generation" OpenGL will come with its own new IR? If that's true, there's little point reinventing new placeholder IRs at this time.

    Why does Gallium have nothing to do with the discussion? It shouldn't be hard to write a state tracker for the next gen OpenGL for Gallium, but I doubt you'll see the performance benefits compared to...

    Gallium3D

    All this talk about reducing API overhead by removing abstractions, and nobody has asked how Gallium3D is affected by this? I'd imagine that Gallium might get in the way of implementing the next-gen...

  18. It's not exactly simple either, given the sheer...

    It's not exactly simple either, given the sheer volume of code and the rate at which it changes. It's practically a full time job to audit the whole lot.

    If that's the case, then you don't have time to be troubleshooting your main production system either.
  20. There is more to the source tree than just .h and...

    There is more to the source tree than just .h and .c files. I think there's some python in there as well, plus they might be including documentation, makefiles etc as well in the line count.
