    I'm a systemd fan who converted from FreeBSD. Does that even us out?

    Self-hosting is the term used to describe a compiler written in the same language it's compiling. The link I gave addresses the chicken and egg problem.

    What kills me the most are people who don't trust cookies, but have no issues using the browser's built-in "remember my password" feature, which just saves your password somewhere on your hard drive....

    It's called self-hosting.
  6. The irony to the whole "systemd is taking away...

    The irony to the whole "systemd is taking away our freedom" argument is that for years, GNU was king userland. But between systemd and LLVM, GNU has lost their monopoly on userspace. Yet somehow,...

    They absolutely would. Small, uncommon libraries aren't going to end up in runtimes, but it's about striking a balance.

    Besides, the alternative for devs who want to distribute software this way...

    It sounds like you think they're talking about abolishing package managers. That's not true at all. Lennart very specifically said that packaging systems are exactly what you want much of the time.

    That's not true. It used to take them several months to release the express edition, but it was never two versions behind, and lately they've been releasing the express editions at the same time as...

    Oh, I see, that picture was supposed to show us what female programmers look like.

    Today I learned that, while everybody knows that male programmers sit at desks and have faces, female programmers...

    That's an excellent article, and I've read it before, but I don't think it means what you think it means.

    The standard library also comes with codecvt classes for using UTF, although I just use my own UTF string class. Unicode is a huge standard when you include normalization, collation, character...

    Yes, it's true for systemd too. Actually, systemd is much better at that sort of functionality. It's not limited to task-level dependencies like Upstart is; it can launch a service when, for...

    systemd achieved 2-second boot times two years ago. Is that fast enough for you?

    All it really means is "It's not going to be in 14.04". 16.04 is the next LTS release, so that's the next "important" release. They're not overly concerned about what goes into the interim releases.

    He contributed nothing to this thread but telling somebody to die. If that's not trolling, I don't know what is.

    I don't think JX8p disagreed with your definition of censorship, it's just that there's a high correlation between people that decry private censorship, and people who think all speech is free...

    In modern Windows, you also don't need to install any drivers, unless you're a gamer or something. (But if you are a gamer, install your damned graphics drivers, srsly.)

    You also don't need to do...

    Don't be that guy.

    When you get used to a piece of software, you forget how much time it took to learn it in the first place. They're not stupid because they can't figure out Windows, they're just...
