Why is every linux distro in existence switching to systemd? Is there something I'm missing here? It's bloated and unnecessary. Who gives a shit if you start everything in parallel? For that matter, who even reboots if they're not upgrading the kernel? I mean look at this shit:
Email program? Writing their own C library? What the actual fuck people, how are you letting this happen?
Systemd's development is following an eerily similar path to xorg. Design something to handle a problem, but make it monolithic and non-interchangable. Soon we'll have more and more stuff built on top of it, people will find problems, but it becomes increasingly hard to fix, until an entirely new paradign is needed to replace the fucking blob of insecure shit.
Who cares what the init system is. If the machine boots up and works, I don't give a damn.
I care. I won't give such an essential part of my systems into the hands of developers with a track record like Poettering and Sievers have. If I can't trust the developers I can't trust their software, simple as that.
Looks like it was a April fool's joke by lennard
Apologies for creating a thread about this
Michael could you delete this please?
Hint: The 'email program' proposal is a reference to Zawinski's Law, which states that "Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can."
