    Default D-Bus Implementation Aiming For The Linux Kernel

    Phoronix: D-Bus Implementation Aiming For The Linux Kernel

    Greg Kroah-Hartman has confirmed he is working on an implementation of D-Bus for merging into the mainline Linux kernel...

    Evil Cabal!

    Lets see how long it will take the usual "platform independent" crowd to figure out this is linux-only. And thus; MUST be hated and abstracted.

    We need to merge Gnome, systemd, ... into kernel and make Linux even more bloated.

    Thats a little extreme considering the kernel already has a message-routing system. This is meant to be replace said system.

    It sounds funny in BSD guy mouths. This approach will make Linux closer to BSD when comes to having core not spread in the wilds. Merging things like dbus will simplify other things a lot and I hope they'll do something similar with glibc or even systemd. BSD is bloated, because it can't even run on mobiles and it's slower. And such approach will make Linux more feature rich, so you can't really compare it to BSD when comes to such aspect of bloat, because you have to add dbus equivalent to BSD first.

    I'm not really "BSD guy".
    They are not merging it into same tree (like BSDs have), but into kernel space.
    BSD is less bloated than Linux, of course it has less features too. BSD can run on small devices. Yes, it's usually little slower, because it's less optimised (bad SMP).

    Funny, you are comparing it to BSD.
    BSD has dbus equivalent, it's dbus daemon (like Linux has now).
    Bloat in kernel space is much worse than in user space.

    But this is not bloat, but something needed. I think it will make everyone's life easier (if Linus won't burn this idea with fire).

    I'd say it's not comparable. A definite plus of the BSDs is that kernel and basic userland are developed in unison. This would definitely help Linux as well. It does not make much sense to separately maintain parts of the userland that interact closely with the kernel.
