    Default Arch Linux Is Switching To Systemd

    Phoronix: Arch Linux Is Switching To Systemd

    The Arch Linux developers feel it's time to switch from using SysVInit to systemd...

    welcome to poetering-OS. Created because pulseaudio had a problem.

    I know some people are going to rage about how terrible systemd is, but it is actually really nice. Arch has been moving towards using a more standard startup sequence for some time, moving stuff out of /etc/rc.conf into the standard configuration files for the backends (the most recent example is networking.)

    Systemd works well and is standard. Arch is about using standard configurations. Using Systemd rather than having a boot sequence that is custom for Arch makes sense.

    Systemd is evil.
    But i guess it was forced on them to keep things working in the future.

    besides BUYING distribution boxes so indirectly paying devs, reporting bugs and some small patches?

    No, but does that mean that just because LP is putting out lots of code any of it is any good at all?

    Are you kidding? Sound deamons have problems, lets create pulseaudio! Pulseaudio has some rt problems, lets create some daemon that fucks up rt for jack users! Pulseaudio has some problems during boot, write a new init system! One that makes things harder for everybody else! Oh and usurp udev, so in the future everybody will be forced to use systemd!

    Next step: registry?

    This is a good thing for Linux standardization. Right now people offering builds of software that need access to the system init scripts, have to deal with a bunch of different systems. If everyone uses systemd, that problem is solved.

    Luddites tend to be hairy, but don't confuse them with neckbeards.

    Change is cool and technology is cool. Systemd kicks ass, but only if it is setup correctly. Just like Pulseaudio kicks ass, but only if it is setup corrrectly.

    Most distros, in terms of number of distros, don't set it up correctly.
