    You are wrong if you think that Canonical can take GPL code from random projects and incorporate it into closed source software.

    If you want to, you can take all of Canonical's patches and send...

    The people who dislike Lennart typically do not use Gnome. From their perspective, they see their systems suddenly being switched to Systemd, so that is the first thing they blame. People don't like...

    The basic argument that has been given is that by making systemd a dependency of Gnome, distributions that wanted to ship Gnome had to adopt systemd (or develop a plugin compatible alternative that...

    Lennart did not say that he has contacted the police, but he presented the "hitman" as though it were a serious threat to his life:

  8. Saying that "Systemd does a lot of things right",...

    Saying that "Systemd does a lot of things right", that there are some good ideas in it, and praising the boot up speed, is a form of support. There are degrees of support - we are not talking about...

    Making a death threat is illegal. If Lennart really believed what he has said - that he has received death threats and there is a plot to hire a hitman - then he should contact the police instead of...

    Yes, more misinterpretations:





    There may be some point to the argument that Linus, like the rest of us, should be careful about what he says, but it is hard to take someone seriously when...
