    Why is Lennart so hated?

    He designed pulseaudio but he's only a developer, distros could either take it or not. If there was a problem blamw the distros like you would for anything else since, ultimately, they are responsible for breakage.
    I don't think it's his personality since he seems pretty mild-mannered, especially as compared to some of our luminaries

    As shown in the above thread the philosophy behind SystemD is so short-sighted and retarded it makes me think Lennart Poettering is just a troll working to undermine the UNIX ecosystem.

    But like I said before what did you expect from the same person who wrote PulseAudio? Another broken, this time hard to debug, binary mess.

    Only fools use binary tools for system administration!
    Wow, what a troll....

    If you are serious, read either the docs, which are both extensive and clear, or read lennart's series "Systemd for admins".

    With consolekit being dead (www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/ConsoleKit/) they don't have much choice.

    Right now it is only the distros that tend to adopt changes quikly and stay up to date use it (Fedora, openSUSE, etc. Arch is moving towards systemd) The trend is for systemd spreading, at this point only debian derivitives are the only ones not using it or moving in that direction.

There's been some discussion of making desktops depend on systemd when GNOME 3.6 is out but that's only when they're ready and they don't know at this point when they will be ready.

    Lennart shared that canonical uses systemd in one version of ubuntu targeted towards vehivle infotainment systems. LoL

    I believe soon they will also kill Upstart and comply to what most of the distros use.

    What am I doing wrong???

    Code:
     ~ % ps aux  | grep journal
    root       155  0.0  0.0  64032  7664 ?        Ss   Aug14   0:01 /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-journald
     ~ % sudo kill -9 155
     ~ % ps aux  | grep journal
    root     12163  0.0  0.0  36536  3740 ?        Ss   19:53   0:00 /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-journald
    I don't see problems...

    edit: I should first read the link.

    +Alan Cox You know, actually we set SIGPIPE to ignore by default for all services we start. Unless a service explicitly resets SIGPIPE so that it results in process termination what you are describing doesn't exist. I mean, we actually tend to do our homework. And systemd is not hard to debug, just not the same way as sysvinit.
