    Fair enough.

    If you need your hands being held: use Mac's. Or Haiku, I suppose. Cannot even understand why you had to drag BSD's into your statement.

    You meant: After systemd has completely "eaten up" Linux, it will become the only viable alternative to BSD's?

    From the Ars review, you can't surf the modern internet on Haiku, so I seriously doubt there are many desktop users. You can on BSD.

    They have a BSD compatibility layer to be able to provide drivers. They could not use Linux simply because it is a mess and not a stable API, making porting much much harder.

    It would be cool though if WDDM (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window...y_Driver_Model) could be supported somehow. I do think that it would be a terribly difficult task to achieve.
