    systemd = less money

    I can't shake the feeling, that all the drama about systemd is caused by people who make their living by keeping the current SysV and peripheral cruft running on Linux, by writing copious amounts of...

    Or motherboard manufacturers could band together and fund Coreboot to write and maintain an implementation that carries Tianocore as the payload. All the coreboot project needs to bring up a board is...

    Since when? All open windows are represented on the window list, so one click there moves the desired window to the front. No need for minimise.

    I still don't see the problem. Linux is an OS that practically assumes network connectivity. What isn't in the DVD iso can be downloaded from the repository.

    It's just an installer framework. Used only during installation and it can install Qt and GTK based desktops equally fine. No need for the outdated KDE vs Gnome purism wars here.

    This might be easy for developers and seasoned users, but not everybody likes the CLI. For these people the friendly GUI interface of VBox is a life saver. CLI for them is a no go and Virt-manager +...

    So far this is just an idea and who says it is the end of the world. I think it is (with emphasis on is) ludicrous that e.g. Mozilla releases a new version of Firefox and then Linux using people have...

    If you have it, why not directly include the link?

    Very much the persons who don't do the work in a distro, I imagine...
  10. This might be true (haven't seen any project yet...

    This might be true (haven't seen any project yet that has tried to make interchangeable parts that plug into systemd as init and services manager), but inclusion of systemd has still been decided...

    I'm not advocating anything of the sort. But this "That doesn't mean though I agree with its design principles, since as a long-time developer, my experience has been that some design-decisions of...

    Nope, that is the elusive UNIX philosophy. That doesn't say anything about the licensing on the software.
  13. Wasn't that something along the lines of "Show me...

    Wasn't that something along the lines of "Show me the code" and "Share the code"...? The rest is just fortunate, collateral bonus.
  14. Well, not to rain on your parade, but what good...

    Well, not to rain on your parade, but what good does ceaselessly criticizing systemd for existing* do? You might not like it, but who are you? What power do you hold within the various distro's? If...
  15. With which you've just written off the majority...

    With which you've just written off the majority of Windows users. Surfing the web should not be an exercise in dodging malware. Also, permissions are better or not, regardless of installed base.
  16. They can't use those other OSes easily either....

    They can't use those other OSes easily either. Most people get them preloaded and preconfigured and most of them (that I've met) are terrified of the prospect of something going wrong. They are...

    I'm ready to admit I was a stick in the mud and at first didn't grok where Gnome was going. With Gnome 3.14 it finally clicked with me.

    I do still rely on a few legacy features (dash to dock,...

    Mir is not an alternative. Mir is a misguided attempt to create a single vendor, defacto standard (yes, single vendor --> CLA).

    A few years back Canonical fancied themselves industry leaders and...

    2012 called. It wants its tired old FUD back.

    If that is the case, then it is bad and should be fixed. Maybe that one of the maintainers can elaborate? I wasn't affected as I am on unstable and testing.
