    Default Systemd 197 Brings "Quite Some Cool New Stuff"

    Phoronix: Systemd 197 Brings "Quite Some Cool New Stuff"

    Lennart Poettering announced the release of systemd 197 on Monday evening. This new release of the increasingly popular init system and service manager for Linux does introduce several new features...

    Systemd is doing the right thing; merging up the right stuff and purging out the worst shit. Easier maintenance and less distro crap. It is quite nice though to see systemd is gaining a larger community outside RH.

    Surely some neckbeardo will start forking it now because they hate Lennart and Kay. Now they can hate Auke Kok, Tom Gundersen et al. as welll since they did the right job of merging&purging. This also adds new layers to the idiotic conspiracy about systemd; Lennart is using systems as a puppet to kill children and drive everyone to Macs. Now Intel and Arch has turned evil too.

    2013 is gonna be a great year for systemd -and its haters.

    I realise there is much hate concerning systemd and Poettering.
    I've to admit I don't know the background of the story.

    All I can add is my experience on Arch:
    I had no problems so far and it's blazing fast.

    Cronie, dcron, distro-specific implementations.

    BTW, the most powerful argument against systemd is "PulseAudio gives problems", always. Keep that in mind.

    I'm surprised that they haven't merged PulseAudio into systemd already, myself. :P

    I heard a rumour that the Webkit project was under consideration for being merged too.

    Nah. The best (read most stupid) argument against it remains the "Unix pholosophy" one.

    When they merge Qt in, you will become "neckbeard" too.

    Sure they will merge stuff with CLA. Im sure the easter bunny, pixie lot and justin bieber will comaintain as well. Oh wait systemd is about removing walled gardens, not supporting them...

    Too bad for craptastic shit ruled under CA or CLA. That includes upstart.

    Bullshit. What solves a problem in a better way is always the best solution. The "philosophy" arguments are religion level stupid.
