    Emacs has always been like that... more operating system than text editor...

    What you expect the 15 year old Slashdot kiddies to do anything more than talk, and compete over first post?
  3. And more specifically, it's an argument over who...

    And more specifically, it's an argument over who actually does the work. There are a lot of people demanding the to be able to choose between different init systems, but not many people volunteering...

    On the contrary... these people are making Congress look good...

    I assume it's intended to be pronounced "zing", which is both easy and obvious enough...
  6. The two aren't completely distinct though....

    The two aren't completely distinct though. "Merit" is partly judged on technical grounds - but also on how the upstream project is run, the ability to attract contributors and to incorporate...
  7. The thing is, it's not Red Hat vs Canonical -...

    The thing is, it's not Red Hat vs Canonical - it's *everyone* vs Canonical. Most big infrastructure projects originate from RedHat or Canonical because they're some of the few companies who can...

    Perhaps, but if so, I can't say I'm impressed by their organisational abilities... they had well-publicised plans to make Mir the default in 13.10, before backing off after realising how far away...

    Yes, that's kind of the point. Ubuntu are planning that 16.04 will be the first release using Mir, about eighteen months from now.

    By contrast, Fedora are shipping Gnome/Wayland as a preview this...

    Speaking as a developer (though not of Gnome), I...

    Speaking as a developer (though not of Gnome), I assume the reason for that is that the fix requires big changes that can't be backported to 3.14 - either because there's too much risk of breaking...

    Not so much. If you look at the uselessd site, they're going a lot further than that. They're not just stripping out all the little add-on modules like consoled or networkd - they're ripping the guts...

    Well, that's obvious enough. It's under the "systemd" umbrella because it's the systemd developers doing it - and it's not under the "Fedora" name because it has nothing to do with Fedora, except in...

    Well, it's the usual story... those who do the work get to make the decisions. And it's the systemd developers who actually sitting down and writing code to solve problems...

    Sure, and personally, I'm happy with the changes they're making. I just mentioned the "flip side" as context for why it's a little contentious.

    Read some of the links to previous Phoronix articles for details, but the gist of it is that the console is a big piece of code which sits in the kernel, and which would (arguably) be pulled out to...

    Some people clearly have anger-management issues... :)

    But as you say, you *guess* that most users have a decent connection. That's the same logic the DNF developers used when disabling the feature. It's not a change that should be made without finding...

    Oh, some of them try. But they usually give up once they realise just how much work they're looking at.

    Which isn't exactly uncommon, you know. If you're not actually a gamer, a dedicated GPU is probably a waste of money, and an obstruction if what you want is a compact quiet machine. Last time I built...
