    SystemdOS is coming along nicely.

      - Support for booting with a kernel command line option of systemd.volatile=overlay to cause the root file-system to be setup as an overlayfs mount paired with tmpfs, which will cause no changes to the underlying root device and all changes lost at reboot.
      That sounds amazing, one step closer to getting a read only root.

        One step closer to a "linux system administrators only OS". How much?

          Nice.

          Really looking forward to the bootloader changes, would be nice to eventually have a better-supported replacement for grub.

            Hu? How is this a step to a "linux system administrators only OS"? Most users would not even notice as long as the graphical configuration tools recognize this and have the ability to write back changes to the underlying root partition. As it is, it will most likely only be used by embedded people and enthusiasts.

                  rumour has it that if you say systemd 3 times in front of a mirror , Weasel and hreindl will turn up and call each other idiots.
