Re: What is the evidence for and against systemd?
see the specifics). I'm all in favour of hardware memory protection
and the like separating disparate system components as a step in the
direction of safety, and I already deplore the monolithicity of the
Linux kernel. (Perhaps formal verification would be an adequate
substitute, but we're not there yet.) But with adequate code review
and such we manage to get along.
OpenVMS had it right. Split it up, put the pieces in their own cpu ring
and have them pass messages. Processes never get escalated privileges.
People had a lot of fun *trying* to break in to OpenVMS at Defcon ->
