    Resorting to ad hominems and similar argumentations! Whahahahahah! Jeez man, took a while, but glad you have no arguments anymore.

    As said beforehand: No suspend was totally fine for OpenBSD and Canonical did some effort on themselves to make suspend possible. You seem to have missed this bit? Try and respond to that!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    PS: To make it really clear for you: Your ad hominem regarding me makes no sense as I already mentioned that at least Canonical and OpenBSD are ok with it.

    hmm for many? which bigger distro doesnt use systemd?

    Systemd Distros: Arch Linux, Gentoo (not 100% shure but 99%), Opensuse and of course Fedora
    Non sysd distros: Debian, Ubuntu, Mint

    Which distros thing about a switch to systemd: Debian, Mint

    So Debian isnt really a Desktop Linux but even there you can install systemd, as easy as apt-get install systemd.

    Basicly it comes down to Ubuntu, if you have switched from Ubuntu to Mint to use the vanilla gnome-shell you made something wrong in the first place, and I think such users would switch distro again fast if they want to use gnome-shell, if they even need too.

    Most of the time its only a few small features that dont work without systemd anyway.

    Debian is the interesting one. I'm not sure if they will switch yes or no. However, they're planning to make GNOME depend on systemd. Which will automatically improve the systemd support. Gentoo packagers might do something similar, though tried my best to ensure to show them that they could have different options if they really want to. If most distributions _by their own choice_ support systemd in one way, them IMO arguments about if suspend is important or not becomes even more irrelevant. Claims made here that things are forced make no sense. The idea is to minimize differences and work together. For that you need cooperation. In the end it should result in less bugs, easier development. For that I am interested in the following distributions basically: Debian, Ubuntu GNOME, Gentoo.

    And because some people have really short memory here: I assisted Gentoo in ensuring they know they don't have to make GNOME in their distribution rely on systemd. Further, I like *BSD and GNOME should keep running on it.

    I have a feeling you're trolling a bit by comparing Ubuntu with OpenBSD. Why not NetBSD, Haiku, the HURD while you're at it?
    I liked using Ubuntu, even though I don't use Gnome 3 or Unity. It's what I install on desktops/laptops, be it text mode installs with LXDE on top (works fine even on Pentium II 233), Xubuntu, Mint 13 or Mint 15.
    I wonder what does that mean for the future of the Linux Mint that uses Ubuntu - I was counting on Mint 17 to be a great release, regardless of the flamewars about systemd vs the world or rpm vs .deb or whatever. Will they modify Cinnamon (custom Gnome 3) further, or hold back on the Gnome 3 version even. I prefer using something else (Mate, Xfce or something else if there's a similar alternative) but this can possibly affect me indirectly, or Cinnamon users.

    Maybe we'll have to live with Mint Debian in the future. But I liked a distro with fixed releases, some of them with 5 year support.

    I use a laptop, and the only time I used the suspend feature was to test if it worked, because something intrigued me. And actually, it doesn't work right, and I always forget to disable the timed suspension when on batteries. So I'm a someone who considers it non-critical.

    Yes, they were mentioned. Several times. Read intellivision posts, at the very least.

    OpenBSD has 2 people who package GNOME and work to make it works on OpenBSD. Canonical does some systemd stuff. I'm not comparing OpenBSD vs Ubuntu, I am following how they integrate GNOME. One of the things that should be done IMO if you're in a release team of a big project. Every member has its own expertise and focusses on different things.

    There was no ad hominem argument there. "insult" != "ad hominem argument".

    He said:
    " You can't be real with that, if you really believe that suspend is a non-critical function then you are totally delusioned. "

    Seems pretty much on the person to me, not about the argument. Maybe one of the others. Anyway, it is still funny.


    Note that meanwhile I built mutter-wayland 3.9.92 in Mageia Cauldron (was waiting for the clutter release). Further, rebuilt gnome-shell in Mageia Cauldron with Wayland support as well. Wondering what all the "OMG upstream should do something" people have done aside from _only_ talk (especially the not listening bit). The Wayland support in Mageia ensures that the huge amount of Cauldron users can test it. Further, QA team can play with it as well. Nice progress

    If that was the entire quote, then you would be right. But you left off the first sentence, which also happens to be where he/she justified that conclusion. In other words, that isn't an argument at all, it was a conclusion drawn from an argument (your quote just doesn't include the argument).

    Insulting someone because you think they are wrong is not a fallacy (although it may be bad manners). Quoting someone out of context to misrepresent their argument is.
