    If only it used just sockets! Dbus also runs as a process, imagine that!

    It's written using a programming language! Oh the horror!

    That would certainly help keeping the noise level down in the forums...

    D-Bus is not a problem by itself. What I don't like is that kdbus/systemd is choking off what I used to like about GNU/Linux, namely its simplicity and fine control. Hence why I and several others use BSD and in my case, commercial UNIX now.

    It's good that you have options and ultimately everyone should be happy then. Purely out of curiosity, which UNIX are you using?

    IRIX for my IRIX boxes, but I've worked with Solaris and UNIXWare. Can't say I like either of them as much as IRIX. Really wish SGI would BSD license the system at the EOL
