    The bug I'm talking about doesn't break that. But if Nocifer's interpretation is right, the issue is that it doesn't bring up a GUI, right? That bug breaks X. The console works about fine. I don't remember the conditions under which it triggered, I only know of some people using Arch hitting it. I think it was specific to initrds that included the gfx modules or something like that.

      This is one of several taint flags and taint flags will be logged to the journal during boot, and you can at any time fetch the set taint flags with "busctl get-property org.freedesktop.systemd1 /org/freedesktop/systemd1 org.freedesktop.systemd1.Manager Tainted". This way organizations can collect those with scripts and let the IT department get a nice log of which users on their net that runs e.g out of date OS:es.
      As a Unix admin for 20 years now all I can think is "What is this desktop bullshit.. use uname" - idiot "feature" from idiot desktop ppl.

      There is no such thing as a Linux desktop, get over it.. Mac is Unix on the desktop.

I'd love it if we could get rid of all the damn three letter directories with stupid backronmys that attempt to make sense of it all like "Editable Text Configuration" and "Unix System Resources" and go with longer names similar to macOS. It's 2022 and we need to get past these three letter holdouts from the late 80s when file systems were half-retarded.
        tbh who cares how a directory is called?
        it's enough when they are consistent.

        text configuration files are perfect. you can use git to track changes, easy to copy and backup. no fancy tool needed to change a setting.

        it sounds like you see linux as a desktop system or want it to be one. it is not. you can use it as such (as i do) but thats not where it shines.

        if you want to lake a look at a linux distribution which really tries to solve some of linux challanges take a look at nixos.

          As a unix admin for longer I could tell you that the tainted flags show more than just the version of the kernel so uname is no replacement. And if there are no Linux desktop then I wonder what all the people at work are running on their machines, it does look like an actual desktop. Mac is nothing both overpriced hw for hipsters.
