    Phoronix: Systemd Introduces Its Own "su" Like Command

    The latest addition to systemd is offering its own command to provide su-like behavior on Linux systems. The machinectl shell command is meant to replace su for running privileged sessions...

        it sounds like the su wheel has 4 corners and looks suspiciously like a square

          innovation from him? kind a joke. lol.
          just reinventing the wheel to look like he is important. look, he does not present any argument why su is deprecated. just said ""su" is really a broken concept."

            even though it is reinventing the wheel , it still provides room for better integration other compenets(cgroup,kbdu), complete isolation, then again i can be wrong too.

              Kinda funny how same bunch of trolls with less than 100 comments show on each systemd news. Don't like it, don't use it! It is that simple.

                If something has issues then it should be criticized, it is the only way things ever get better. Think how bad the Linux kernel would be if you weren't allowed to report bugs or criticize it.

                Also calling everyone who has a different opinion to you a troll makes you look stupid.

                  You ever notice how everything in Linux is a fundamentally broken concept according to this guy?

                    Sadly, if only that were the case. More and more distributions are actively moving towards depending on systemd. Sure, there are distributions that do not depend on it or that use it, but still, it is more and more becoming the status quo. Which is not to say I disagree with it; I do not mind systemd itself. Just the arrogance of some of the people involved in developing it.
