Re: OT: complaints about systemd

What I would like to stress is that systemd is practically incompatible and a great annoyance for both Hurd and kfreeBSD. OpenRC IMHO always seemed a better replacement for the traditional init. My 2 cents.

If this is what the systemd people wanted in the first place, then everything that has come before seems to be a deception. In the guise of solving init problems, they mean to start a process that would end Linux as we know it.

At this point, it's a different OS, and one that seems to be a whole lot of work for seemingly not much of a result. I'm honestly having a hard time wrapping my head around just what they're trying to do with this. With all these multiple versions of distros and DEs and such, it seems to me this is just setting up for even more bugs, user headaches, and huge amounts of wasted hard drive space.

I'd like to think that were this forwarded to various distro heads, they'd drop systemd like the plague and invest in something like OpenRC, but I'm not very optimistic about that anymore.

All that under the hood of 'systemd' just appears like a trojan horse. They should've called it DLL (Distributors-Less Linux) in the first place.

And yes, they're gonna replace Login and the Linux VT console too :) just about anything.
