Re: Proposal - preserve freedom of choice of init systems - SysV is FINE. Systemd won, sysV/OpenRC/etc fans must leave
Can't do it all myself.
Debian was created by 1000s of people.
The systemd people take over.
They then say all anti-systemd debate is trlling
or spm, and that anyone that doesn't
like systemd has to go make their own
linux distribution by themselves,
no matter the fact that they, the systemd
people did not create debian, they just
co-opted it by targeting the decision
It's OK for the systemd people to use others.
Anyone else has to go it alone, even if
what they like is allready supported.
"buh buy, we won, gtfo"
Here's the door to bsd, etc.
It's like getting kicked out of your own country.
"Go create your own, we bought the politicians and
thus control the passive army"

I should not have to forgo all the packages of debian, all my experiance
with debian (13 years), because four people deciced I and everyone of
the thousands of debian developers and debian users should use systemd
and that is it. The people who make debian are not beholden to gnome,
systemd, redhat. The people on that committie might be. The people like
me who are opensource programmers do not have to just accept the
decision of the systemd backers.
1. Debian is *not* the universal operating system. After Windows and Mac
OsX, and maybe Unix, probably Ubuntu is.
2. Since you are a programmer, and Linux is an open source system, why
not modify the part that includes the undesired code
and put back the desired code? You could then publish the revised
version as "Good Linux" or whatever you decided to call it.
(I am not a fan of Ubuntu, just saying. . . .)
