Outlining Thin Linux
If you dont have hotplug hardware with its udev nonsense, and you don't have a GUI, and your users don't log in interactively to the OS, why do you need systemd and all its crap? init + an rc script to launch $YOUR_APP and you're done.
Trouble In Branson-Land, As Would-Be Space Tourists Get Antsy Over Delays
Of course Memedot has to trash Branson, a businessman, over Musk, a trendy-named dotcom guy with a penchant for electric cars.
Fork of Systemd Leads To Lightweight Uselessd
The bastard child of a trashy hardware site (i.e. not Anandtech, maybe TH or one of the other lamer ones) and OSNews. Did they round out the article with meaningless, unlabelled graphs?
Why a Chinese Company Is the Biggest IPO Ever In the US
Hooray, getting more plastic knockoff versions of things, produced by slaves (hint: Communism doesn't treat people kindly), with zero regard for the environment, and shipped halfway across the planet.
Canadian Regulator Threatens To Impose New Netflix Regulation
And that's the root of it. The socialist hatred of profit.
Obama Presses Leaders To Speed Ebola Response
When those 3000 dudes come home, and go back through the major US airports, back to their families distributed across the country, and THEN spread the disease, it's going to be awesome.
Never wasting a good crisis, the President and administration will use this as an opportunity for massive federalization of health care and private sectore business.
Torvalds: No Opinion On Systemd
As a RHEL server admin, the only thing I see systemd adding is complexity. Do a fresh install and compare it to RHEL5 or 6, and you have way more stuff running, new start/stop methods for init scripts, weird NTP replacements, and a bunch of stuff that you don't need. Then you go and install your app, or something like Postfix (because you're building a mail server). Why do you need parallel boot? udev hotpluggery? a "logind" process?

Obama Administration Seeks $58M To Put (Partly) Toward Fighting Ebola
ZMapp is produced by a private firm. By effectively socializing its production, Obama can say "they didn't build that".
How the Outdated TI-84 Plus Still Holds a Monopoly On Classrooms
I still own a 'scientific' calculator that I bought in 1983, and it took me all the way up through Physics, Statics, Dynamics and Thermodynamics courses in a rather fine Engineering college. What do these fancy graphing calculators offer that paper and pencil + a decent scientific calculator can't ?
Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture
First articles here, then a new policy on Fark, and now yet another story about misogyny. It's a constant, subtle pressure in the background for Millenials that women are oppressed... so they'll march right to the polls in 2016. Just like if you opposed Barack Obama you were automatically a racist, by 2016 if you have any objections to Hillary Clinton, you'll be shouted and blogged down as a misogynist.
Like a kid asking for just 5 more minutes of TV time, or a 20 year long constant nagging for socialized medicine, eventually you chip away at the resolve of the unaware and get what you want.
