  1. Don't hold your breath before you take into...

    Don't hold your breath before you take into account the complexity of the task and the terrible state of documentation.

    Systemd works like a mousetrap - the door seems to be open and there's some...

    /sigh
    Do you even know what D-Bus is?

    ---

    Anyway, systemd isn't about overtaking the kernel. Red Hat decided to do it Google way. Why control the kernel when you can control everything else...

    As soon as kdbus is in mainline kernel (systemd developers control D-Bus project).
  4. DEs are useless without applications, mate. ...

    DEs are useless without applications, mate.

    Why oh why every time I post on Phoronix forums it feels like I'm talking to a bunch of total retards...
  5. Final thoughts: at this point it's too late to...

    Final thoughts: at this point it's too late to discuss whether systemd is good or bad (unless you're into purely academic discussions like what NT would be without Win32 API). The freedom of choice...
  6. Do you want to build your own distro from...

    Do you want to build your own distro from scratch? If not, you don't have many options besides Gentoo and even then you can't just pick any GUI like you used to. Half of the GUI userland irreversibly...
  7. You can deny it all you want but if a distro uses...

    You can deny it all you want but if a distro uses systemd it's de-facto under RH control. It's that simple.
  8. Good news but due to Ubuntu release cycle there...

    Good news but due to Ubuntu release cycle there won't be an LTS till 2016. And non-LTS releases are hardly useful now having just 9 months till end-of-life.
  9. Coreboot project is more important than people...

    Coreboot project is more important than people think. Secure Boot proved that UEFI was a dead end for x86-based open-source systems and of course on ARM-based platforms things are even worse. As long...

    Like I said, a classic case of drama queen syndrome.


    Sorry, but I disagree. Whether you like it or not.
  11. It was never justified. When it started it was...

    It was never justified. When it started it was 50% "look at me I'm the newest drama queen!" and 50% pure unabashed anti-ffmpeg trolling. And Libav developers have never even pretended to be...
  12. Yeah. From pro-libav retards. Libav is the #2...

    Yeah. From pro-libav retards.

    Libav is the #2 worst thing that ever happened to Debian.
  13. Not exactly. In fact nobody cares. Even the...

    Not exactly. In fact nobody cares. Even the rhetorics is just a pretext for our oligarch leaders to steal more money from the budget, from the people. You need to live in Russia to understand what's...
  14. Ever heard of coercion? And no it doesn't mean...

    Ever heard of coercion? And no it doesn't mean someone is literally holding a knife to your throat. There are other, much more subtle ways. Systemd is about forcing dependencies and limiting choices...
  15. I wouldn't call it an alternative and I wouldn't...

    I wouldn't call it an alternative and I wouldn't call it desktop usage.

    ---

    Well, at least it's getting clearer why systemd has so many apologists and what sort of people they are. The same...

    You must be on drugs, pal. The last thing I want on my desktop (let alone on my servers) is an Android-wannabe pseudo-OS.
  17. You said it.

    You said it.

  19. I still use Linux at the moment but I'm halfway...

    I still use Linux at the moment but I'm halfway to BSD so to speak. One must always hedge against risks and risks associated with over-relying on Linux are currently at all time high.

    People say...
  20. You should care about whatever is relevant for...

    You should care about whatever is relevant for you. (For me none of those things is even remotely significant, sorry.)

    But everything comes for a price. The price of systemd is... Linux as we know...
