    Awesome, I've been looking forward to this release.

    The UEFI boot manager especially is going to be really useful in my setup.

      I would like a "reboot to UEFI shell" option.

        What's the state of systemd-consoled? Haven't heard anything about that in a while.

          Not all motherboards have a UEFI shell built in. It's (currently) outside the scope of systemd to provide a full-fledged UEFI shell environment.

            GNU/Linux should be renamed systemd/Linux, honestly.

              Does any motherboards have a UEFI shell built-in?
              I believe the UEFI shell resides on the EFI system partition maybe?

              So if you could just have an option to boot the shell from the EFI system partition.

                I had 1 or two ASRock boards that had a built-in UEFI Shell (as in, it existed on the board, and worked without a HDD being present). The MSI board I have also has a EFI shell, but I haven't actually tried it.

                  What?! Why? What happened to GNU? Are they okay?

                    I think the parent means that systemd seems to be replacing a lot of GNU tools, programs, and functions within Linux distros that adopted it. While systemd is licensed under the GPL, some people maintain that it's not GNU or is against GNU principles, therefore they are calling Linux distros systemd/Linux as a dig at the systemd folks.
