    Quoting myself:



    Am I wrong?
    Sure, PyPy *should* (or may) generate C code that uses safe string types, some-what better house-keeping, but neither one gives an concrete advantage over modern...

    NOTE: I maintain a couple of packages in Fedora.

    Actually, its far simpler than it looks.
    Switch to the RPM package git.
    Edit the SPEC file, adding the missing security patch.
    Use mock to build...

    As far as I see (fedora-devel), mass rebuild request was denied.
    Without it, pushing gcc 5.0 is crazy talk (I maintain a couple of packages written in C++).

    You sure? Do you have a link?

    I doubt that the discussion above, on both side, is very constructive.
    ... and beyond anything else, its useless [1], [2].
    As I said in the links above, systemd is here to stay, far too many large...

    I doubt that there's a place for such language. Please keep the discussion civil.

    As far as I remember pypy generates C code, and is still bound to the Python VM (E.g. GIL).
    Not sure how this makes it more secure than modern C/CPP code.

    I fully agree.
    While "safe" programming language mitigate common/simple breaches such as string overflow (which can also be solved by using size-terminated strings or by using a long list of "safe"...

    In many senses, any security issues within the kernel networking layer, IP/UDP/TCP layers and/or iptables, can have far *worse* implications that a mere PID1 bug.
    You are plain wrong.

    Care the point out any solid statistics that proves that Perl/Python/Rust based PID1 is more secure than C/C++ based PID1 or are you just inventing stuff as you go along?
    (Let alone the fact that...

    First, "I can help with tracking down bugs or with documentation" is *very* important. I would imagine that the Devuan project will require a lot of testing and documentation. I would imagine that...

    Oh, OK.
    I never claimed systemd to be remotely close to perfect.
    I do claim to developing and fielding complex multi-service appliances is now far easier, than it used to, back in the (not-so) good...

    Systemd is designed, and will replace most of the Linux base system - especially when dealing with light-weight VM's and containers.
    As an embedded system developer, I for one welcome my new systemd...

    I'm certain the developers held their breath waiting for you to complement them.
    Spoiled brat.



    Thanks for the hard work.

    I beg to differ.
    Unless HP can get a *lot* of people using Linux++, developer adoption rate will be *very* low, killing any chance of Carbon OS gaining momentum before its even born.

    To be honest, we are splitting hairs over theory. We will never know if the IA-64 ever had a chance to kick the Xeon and (later) the Opteron out of the server make, had Intel managed to get it out on...
