    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...

    No, systemd definitely has issues, but when you take the whole environment into account, it has less issues than sysvinit.

    I would never claim systemd will never crash. I'd never make such...

    Stability of business logic is very relevant when the new init system can deal with bad services and the old one can't.

    The "LoC(systemd) - LoC(sysvinit) > LoC(essential business logic)" formula...

    You're accusing us of running Linux for bragging rights, while at the same time complaining that your club isn't exclusive enough?

    I run Linux because it's a good server OS. I run Windows because...

    Well, if we define stability as being inversely proportional to LoC, then your argument only holds true if LoC(systemd) - LoC(sysvinit) > LoC(essential business logic). You would have to be running a...

    Actually, nowadays they do have a free "Express" edition, and it's perfectly usable even for professional development. The only downside I've run into is that it doesn't support plugins.

    It's been a while since I regularly ran a Linux desktop, but I run Linux servers. Obviously my servers don't visit Phoronix too regularly, unless they've developed sentience without telling me.
