  1. Well, ok, but two things: One, like I mentioned,...

    Well, ok, but two things: One, like I mentioned, in practice such wrappers are the exception (the example I gave with libedit/readline; gnutls has an openssl compatibility wrapper; while there might...
  2. What makes you think I think that? But you do...

    What makes you think I think that? But you do write generic descriptions on how something works, as if I don't know these things already.

    Again, what relevance does this have? The point is that...
  3. And again with the stupid tone. What makes you...

    And again with the stupid tone. What makes you think I don't know all of this already? And what relevance does it have? Fact remains, unless you decide to use an abstraction framework or sound server...
  4. libjpeg-turbo is explicitly written to be API...

    libjpeg-turbo is explicitly written to be API compatible with regular libjpeg. But you can't substitute in some other jpeg library.

    But unless the lib is written to be API compatible with...
  5. Alsa is in userspace as well, and applications...

    Alsa is in userspace as well, and applications willing to use it must explicitly link with alsa-lib, which means writing the necessary code to interface with it. And getting your app to play sound by...

    *facepalm*

    That's gotta be among the crappiest arguments I've ever seen. Dafuq, guys, seriously?
  7. No, what you have is a dependency on a service...

    No, what you have is a dependency on a service manager. And that's because the DE developers explicitly want to use a service manager, because it performs the duties of starting and monitoring DE...
  8. Ya'rly. There may be something painfully...

    Ya'rly.

    There may be something painfully obvious here, but it's not the thing you're claiming.
  9. You see value in a feature, and yet you call it...

    You see value in a feature, and yet you call it bloat. That makes no sense.

    networkd doesn't hijack anything, it can easily be disabled. journald has the ability to forward everything to your...
  10. So what would you do about the stuff I mentioned,...

    So what would you do about the stuff I mentioned, like session tracking and relieving DEs from having to implement distro-specific backends for configuration GUIs? These features are desirable, DEs...
  11. We can and we have. The point is, why do it again...

    We can and we have. The point is, why do it again for someone who's not willing to really listen anyway?

    Originally the idea behind systemd (as it is with all would-be init replacements) was using...
  12. Are we all supposed to use the "one true DHCP...

    Are we all supposed to use the "one true DHCP server"? And which one would that be - ISC dhcp, dnsmasq, busybox udhcpcd, toybox dhcpd, some other server I'm sure exists besides those I mentioned?
  13. Says the person whose anti-systemd rant was just...

    Says the person whose anti-systemd rant was just a string of words without any substance behind them. Hilarious.

    I, or anyone else, could write something in defense of systemd. But, two things: a)...
  14. I didn't restrict anything. I gave those two as...

    I didn't restrict anything. I gave those two as *examples* that I immediately thought of. They are more than sufficient to refute your point. There was consensus, in more cases than just the examples...
  15. That is completely false. They have agreed on...

    That is completely false. They have agreed on dbus (KDE dropped their in-house dcop for it, for example), they have agreed on systemd (there are a few outliers, mostly Slackware and Gentoo, but...
  16. So Canonical narrows the scope down to...

    So Canonical narrows the scope down to applications and then says display servers don't matter because of toolkits. That's actually a troll technique, narrowing the scope to make an argument that...
  17. It's good to have a VC-1 decoder because of that...

    It's good to have a VC-1 decoder because of that (and vaapi already has it, as does vdpau), but why would you care about having an encoder? If you want to make Blu-ray compliant video just use x264,...

    If the 1920p resolution was the VBIOS, sure. There's no fixed list of resolutions that are in there, it's different on every GPU. Well, there's the standard vesa resolutions, but GPUs can and do...

    @Fresh_meat: Vesa is a generic driver. As such, it can only use resolutions that are in the VBIOS of the GPU. Getting other resolutions requires knowledge of how the GPU's output logic works. This...

    XMir is basically a fork of XWayland. The much touted advantage of Mir, being able to use Android drivers, was made possible using a library that was developed for Wayland (libhybris). Then there's...
