Debian's Systemd Adoption Inspires Threat of Fork

visualight Re:What? (522 comments)

Bullshit.

Everyone I know that is either (1)uninterested in the systemd debate, or (2) actually in favor of systemd is (3) a completely incompetent hack in most areas that (4) have mostly bad ideas generally.

Debian's Systemd Adoption Inspires Threat of Fork

visualight Re:What? (522 comments)

The perspective that thought NetworkManager / Avahi should be a default 'on' in a server install is so completely fucked up that it shouldn't be trusted on any topic.

visualight Re:That's all we need ... (522 comments)

Well said! Competent people with the authority to make their own choices DON'T CHOOSE RHEL.

Debian's Systemd Adoption Inspires Threat of Fork

visualight Re:Honestly, I prefer the one on the left (522 comments)

No you're wrong. We *already* know shell scripting, and if you want to be a sysadmin or work in ops you *must* know shell scripting. Using systemd doesn't make the 'must know shell scripting' requirement go away.

*Everyone* I know in this industry is anti-systemd.

Oxytocin Regulates Sociosexual Behavior In Female Mice

visualight Re:Your conclusions are invalid. (216 comments)

It is heresy to even suggest that there are biology driven gender specific behaviors. Everything bad in the world is because boys are socialized incorrectly. Don't worry though, social science ( nee studies ) professors are retooling our schools as we speak!

I'll just leave this here:

Code.org: Blame Tech Diversity On Education Pipeline, Not Hiring Discrimination

visualight Re:This again... (227 comments)

No evidence required. If you are making the reverse claim, that women are just as interested in math and physics as men, then evidence is required.

IOW:
Men and Women are different biologically. Doesn't mean we can't socialize men into wearing skirts, but it DOES mean we cannnot *socialize* men into having the same ability to empathize that women have. This has been accepted as fact since before the first beer was brewed. The extraordinary claim is nurture, not nature and so far all I've seen is giant leaps of logic and circular reasoning to back up that claim. Most of the nature crowd just keeps repeating that their ideology is "well grounded in science" as if we will all accept it eventually. Oh, and write blogs intended to discredit actual "I don't have an agenda" science. When they're cornered in debate with an actual intelligent person they fall back on "well, that's not relevant here" bullshit.

The fact that they get so furious when you don't believe with them is like a big "I joined a cult" sign.

Microsoft On US Immigration: It's Our Way Or the Canadian Highway

visualight Re:"stashes its cash" (365 comments)

The foreign subsidiary being a P.O. box in a country that doesn't tax them.

It's a corruption. They get loopholes that allow them to get out of taxes as long as their money stays overseas, but then every 10 years or so we have a "tax holiday".

They belong in jail.

Fork of Systemd Leads To Lightweight Uselessd

visualight Re:Finally someone decides to do something (469 comments)

That pat answer again? Apples and Oranges...

Get this into your head: The fucking kernel is the fucking kernel alright? It is one fucking thing. Yes, people refer to it as a "monolithic kernel" to contrast with a "microkernel" but , it is one fucking thing. Got it? Next time someone complains about the monolithic design of systemd and you feel the words "but the kernel..." welling up in your throat, just slap yourself until you start to remember words like "context" ok?

--*I*-- use cgroups copiously and will not use systemd, so, not really plus for systemd...maybe a "not minus".

Fork of Systemd Leads To Lightweight Uselessd

visualight Re:udev (469 comments)

No one thinks udev is PID 1 , but there are people who think POS is so integrated it might as well be. Calling udev PID 1 is just people trying to win an argument. Like "debunking" a bunch of "myths" no one holds while ignoring real and valid complaints. It's about WINNING for them.

Fork of Systemd Leads To Lightweight Uselessd

visualight Re:at least the rationale is good (469 comments)

"Systemd is what happens when inexperienced people with high IQ fly off on a tagent without engineering ability."

Exactly. There is no doubt that he's a very smart person who can code, but his ideas suck. Dependencies, political pressure, and inexperienced young windows refugees are why we are where we are now...

Fork of Systemd Leads To Lightweight Uselessd

visualight Re:What a fitting name! (469 comments)

"Myth: systemd makes it impossible to run syslog"

Stupid. NO ONE was saying that so what's the point of debunking this non-existent myth? Journald is a bad idea and that's not a myth it's a FACT.

Semantics aren't enough to call that a myth, doesn't matter how often that link gets posted. It's a monolith and that's all there is to it.

Tell me about it. I won't even sync anymore unless I have time to go to the forums first and make sure there wasn't a coup and systemd is now required on Gentoo.

SanDisk Releases 512GB SD Card

visualight Re:1024-fold (210 comments)

Why is this flamebait? I refuse to speak these words as well. A GB is 1024MB. The other thing is some asshat 20 years late to the party solving a problem that almost no one thought was a real problem. Fuck'em.

It's not like no one's asking, there's no way Mark Rein isn't aware of all the threads posted, he is clearly avoiding the question. Why not just say yes or no? In either case what's motivating Epic to pretend we're invisible? Can slashdot help force an answer? Would doing so push Epic to drop any Linux plans out of spite? http://utforums.epicgames.com/search.php?searchid= 255245 (search "linux" on epics ut3 forums)"
