    And this is good, as the Linux userspace needs a bit of dictatorship. Common components, commands and API

    See the title....

    Perhaps the person is just poking fun, trying to make your day a little bit more pleasant and enjoyable.

    Then you turn to slinging the "T" word at the poster. How are you no different from Lennart in this respect? Perhaps you are nothing more than a sockpuppet for Lennart.

    Hey Ericg...lighten up.

    Last I checked.. Troll was a pretty minor insult. Like on the same level as calling someone a "jerk.", maybe even less than that. Also, it stops being "funny" after the millionth time. Everyone knows that the surefire way to start a 90pg systemd thread is to make just ONE comment about it being monolithic.

    Trust me.. I've done my fair-share of Lennart bashing. Im far from a sock-puppet or a fanboy. He's not perfect, he's screwed up, but systemd thusfar isn't one of the screwups.

    I wonder how soon Archlinux's core repository will contain only a single package...

    137 -
    The difference in number is from the website listing arch-dependent packages twice.

    NTP control have been a feature since early development of systemd, so while this SNTPv4 client is new, it isn't anything new that systemd controls NTP, time, date and timezone setting. This client seems very much targeted towards embedded systems like the Raspberry Pi that lacks a RTC (real time clock).

    Despite the impression that some people get, systemd have been rather focused in its development over the years.

    Awesome. NTP is pretty hard to set up... Even now I'm not really certain if it works well on my HTPC/computing server. So having something simpler will be much appreciated.

    They should have called it kitchensync -- finally systemd is feature-complete!

    It is becoming remarkably like a BSD in of itself. Is systemd-libc next?

    Yep!

    We figured to complete the systemd project we were still lacking an
    email program[1]. In order to get this off the ground quickly we noticed
    we’d need a libc first.
    Technically, this move makes perfectly sense, too. We are sick of
    supporting unstable glibc APIs and ABIs, and we believe that we greatly
    benefit from the fact that we now finally have everything the OS
    userspace consists of in one single repository.
