  1. I'm sure we'll end up breaking those symlinks...

    I'm sure we'll end up breaking those symlinks eventually, or just go the OS X / Gobo Linux route and allow 'hidden' folders (without using a '.') so that they are there, dont break paths, but aren't...

    We've already done /bin, /sbin, /lib ---> /usr/, so we know for a fact that we can symlink directories to new locations and not screw much up.

    If we did an FHS3.0 / 4.0 update, maybe updating...

    I knew that system32 was systme file directory, what I didn't know was that SysWOW64 stood for. That logic is literally painful o.O /system64 and be done with it...

    They are? o.O Thats news to me and i fix Windows machines.

    Now now, pal, this was a half decent systemd discussion. Don't poison the well by name-calling.
  7. Well thats the thing though, portage will update...

    Well thats the thing though, portage will update /usr/lib/systemd/system (and any other pieces of software that ship default unmodified config files for backup in /usr/). Those copies are supposed to...

    Not a Gentoo user so I can't make any comment on that. But, just as an example of the two distros that I do use: AFAIK, neither Arch nor Fedora have any way to return to 'pristine /etc'.
  9. /etc/ is being used for system wide settings...

    /etc/ is being used for system wide settings though. systemd's config-lookup priority goes: /etc/ --> /usr/lib/systemd/system/. It only goes to /usr/lib/ if it gets an empty or incomplete...

    You can't use $HOME/.config/ for administrator-specific settings for system daemons since those daemons could not read from the user's home dir.
    And /etc/ IS being used for system-wide settings, its...
  12. Distro shipped defaults go into /usr/lib,...

    Distro shipped defaults go into /usr/lib, user-overrides go into /etc with systemd. This way the distro can still update the defaults and the user can still ship their custom overrides. Whether they...

    Gestures typically mean things like "pinch to zoom", 2-finger scrolling, double-tap-to-zoom, 2-finger swipe to turn pages in ereader applications / presentations / full screen pdfs. Any multi-touch...

    Pulseaudio or just all of wine-staging? Fedora has shipped wine-pulseaudio since it got published. Fedora 21 and 22 have moved to shipping Wine-Staging by default instead of mainline Wine

    They seem to pretty hard to find... Anytime I see an AMD sticker on a laptop its a very low end HP

    The last I heard-- this may have changed since then-- raster was always the safer bet to use not only for performance but also for stability.

    I know you say that sarcastically uid, but i really do hope that eventually C and C++ can be phased out for Rust or a Rust-Like language where its memory-safe. Its not that programmers don't know...

    Runs as user if using logind (at least on Fedora, idk if those patches got propagated out to other distros) and the open source drivers. If you don't use a login manager you can run xorg as user...
