    Default A Major Music Company Now Backs Systemd In Debian

    Phoronix: A Major Music Company Now Backs Systemd In Debian

    Yesterday on Phoronix I mentioned Debian looked to be leaning in favor of using systemd over Upstart for its default init system given the latest comments by the technical committee members. The latest support for systemd in Debian comes from a streaming music company that's a major user of Debian GNU/Linux...

    I asume the debian developers are not that impressed by this statement, although I hope they decide for systemd.

    Damn... need to get rid of my ubuntu installation

    It will impress only if the intention is to contribute. If not, it is only a opinion. And opinion do not impress developers.

    Then such developers are worthless. Like it or not Spotify is a customer, to keep good customers you need to at least listen to their opinions and rationally evaluate what is being said.

    There is no such thing as "Debian customers", I bet you don't use it...

    Debian doesn't get PAID by Spotify.. They aren't CUSTOMERS. If Spotify uses Debian without contributing then they are no different than any other random user who simply uses Debian and their opinion doesn't have any more backing. Now, if Spotify DOES contribute and is willing to KEEP contributing, perhaps even in the realm of systemd, then that's different.

    It does feel kinda cool to find out where Debian or its derivates end up being used, though. Like Valve's SteamOS, like Nokia's N900 phone, like all of Google's servers, like laptops for astronauts onboard the ISS.

    Same here. I use Kubuntu because (1) I use KDE, (2) I want a popular distro, user oriiented, and (3) I want easy third party or backport management, and Ubuntu still gives me all that, particularly with the PPAs.

    I used to see a lot of value also in having Ubuntuforums with a gazillion users. But there are less and less problems as Linux gets more polished, and really, my computers bore me these days, nothing to fix anymore And KDE has alienated me to the point that I only use the basics: Plasma, Dolphin. The rest, it's a mix: Chrome for the web and gmail, Google docs most of the time for documents, Pitivi for video editing, tv-maxe or chrome for streamed sports, vlc for media, etc ...
