    What do you mean?

    What is wrong with D-Bus?

    No, it's actually great idea to use D-bus, because it's not available in BSD. It's Linux community that's driving FLOSS and there's no contribution coming from BSD tiny word. Just ask KDE, Gnome or X developers about this or check which bug reports are meaningful. For example: PC-BSD has debugging disabled while even Ubuntu has this turned on (which makes Ubuntu vs BSD benchmarks quite unfair).

    It's a bloated, slow, and unnecessary daemon. My systems are usually dbus-less.

    Re Pawlerson, I don't know about it on BSD. If it's not available there, then that's another good reason against it.

    We should have kdbus ("kernel dbus") before the end of the year that makes it fast, lean and daemon-less.

    D-Bus is available for BSDs. According to Greg K-H some BSD developers are interested in kdbus too.

    This one is not the reason against it.

    Perhaps. Basing current work on something that may or may not happen in the future is not smart.

    We can use dbus today. If kernel bus implementation is successful it shouldn't be any problem with a port to it when the dbus inteface is done.

    The only good thing about dbus is the precedent in introducing other generic client ipc (other than pipes and sockets). Maybe now plumber will get ported and we can finally have small and sane programs again.

    That you do not need it for your use case does not make it unneccessary. Most desktops require dbus, systemd uses dbus. Suggesting unneccessary is funny, but does not make it true.
