Thank you, this is my every day as systemd's birth has been painful to say the least.

What's Been the Best Linux Distro of 2014?

Zeromous Re:Systemd uses (302 comments)

The assumption that I am free to choose what platform I support is bonkers. I am asking to choose the init system. I make multiplatform software. I need to support every distro, and it has fractured in to SysV and SysD. It will fracture again further in the future. Locking in is stupid stupid stupid and anti-UX

Debian Talks About Systemd Once Again

Zeromous Re:Completely wrong (504 comments)

THe problem is this has been top down dictated. The correct way would have been to offer both, and let developers develop for BOTH. Not systemd primacy. Beg for secondary.

What's Been the Best Linux Distro of 2014?

Zeromous Re:systemd (302 comments)

Answer the question AC.

What actual issues and typical usecases do systemd address? I've heard about all the minor nuisances it supposedly addresses although none of them have ever effected me personally. But please tell me why I **need** it. And if you can't please tell me why it is default? It should not be default is all.

Apps should support SysV init and Systemd and if this is the case, why is systemd default as it is quite frankly not the lowest common denominator? Each time I ask this question I get personally berated by the pulseaudio meathead's personal fan club. I want actual answers because so far I haven't been shown a good reason for this, other than "Why not stupid old neckbeard?"

It flies in the face of everything I've ever been taught about UNIX. But don't berate me with bullshit like "Linux isn't UNIX".

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

Zeromous Re:Why do people care so much? (747 comments)

Yes. I'm beginning to wonder if Adam uses RHEL7 outside of 'vanilla' norms, very frustrating although I'm sure the kinks are worked out.....but I'm still left with WHY did we break it? Couldn't we have made systemd an option not a requirement?

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

Zeromous Re:Why do people care so much? (747 comments)

Actually no, this is informative to me. Thanks.

I am not a troll. I am frustrated because RHEL7 is a heaping pile of poop presently.

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

Zeromous Re:Why do people care so much? (747 comments)

>Sys-V is an utter shambles when automating that many machines.

That's funny it works for my broad spectrum workloads and systemd does not. Why do I not have a choice?

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

Zeromous Re:Why do people care so much? (747 comments)

Well I get shiny RHEL7. I build my systems like RHEL6 (I don't do a lot of custom init stuff).

RHEL7 fails to boot after a while because of systemd. No one knows why. At first I was told it was hardmounts. Take them out in rescue mode, no booty.

Systemd by design tries to mount nfs shares, before it even starts up the network, out of the box! Systemd supresses everything unless you tell it to. Why? Because some hotshot idiot thought I was using RHEL to run a desktop? Oh hey, just what I wanted BINARY LOGS THAT BREAK ALL MY EXISTING AUTOMATION.

This is the problem with systemd, it is unportable, monolithic and subject to dictatorship. And what does it offer me day to day in a grinding development lab? Nothing. Also yes, Embedded systems. I still support those too.

GNOME 3 Winning Back Users

Zeromous Re: And systemd had nothing to do with it. (267 comments)

I don't know it make me think that maybe systemd is trying to be it's all the time when sometimes people just want its because it makes more sense.

CBC Warns Canadians of "US Law Enforcement Money Extortion Program"

No pretty sure police can't and don't do this in Canada. They actually have to arrest you and the money is evidence if purported to be proceeds of crime.
