"Question: "What are the advantages of ALSA/PA versus OSSv4 ? Why do you think the BSDs still use OSS instead of reimplementing ALSA/PA ?"
His answer doesn't even include "ALSA", he's only talking about OSS."
He was asked for advantages between ALSA/PA vs OSS stacks. So he talked on shortcomings of OSS. He could have talked on advantages of ALSA. It is different sides of same coin.
"Question: "Systemd use a lot of Linux only technologies (cgroups, udev, fanotify, timerfd, signalfd, etc). Do you really think the Linux API has been taking the role of the POSIX API and the other systems are irrelevant ?"
His answer, shortened to the most important part: "Yes""
His answer, shortened the way it does not damage the meaning, unlike your short troll answer, is: "Yes,..I just don't think it's really in our interest to let us being held back by them (non-Linux) if we want to make sure Linux enters the mainstream all across the board "
"And let's not forget that this guy wants to kill distributions: http://derstandard.at/1342947866275/...icht-fuenfzehn (couldn't find a English translation)."
I know german pretty well and he does NOT want to kill distributions.
He wants to kill the system reinvention in the distributions, so distributions focus on delivering software and not on rewriting own versions of time setting.
I think you are a HUGE troll. Lennard made A LOT for linux. You have not.
I think, you are also BSD TROLL.
Because you don't like single point - a freedom protecting GPL, and this way refuse to take Linux and want Lennard to support your BSD thief system, otherwise you start calling him names, cherrypicking articles and falsifying his speech.
Lennard is fscking HERO for Linux and he does A LOT to make Linux mainstream system. It is HIS choice to focus just on Linux. The software is free, so go ahead and port it to/help working on your BSD. Pottering does not own you anything.
