Good luck trying to fix something when it breaks. You'll find little or no documentation, scripts that call scripts that lead to more scripts, and logs that don't give you any meaningful information. People did fork a systemd free version of Debian and Slackware is still chugging along without it.

Comment: Big Business (Score 4, Insightful) 176

I used to think that inmates talking about prison being a business was bullshit. Then I see how many prisons are privately run and how deals are made to keep that at a certain capacity. Then think of all the support companies that sell items to prisons (clothing, food, equipment, employees, etc etc). Then you look at the incarceration rate of the USA compared to other countries and it all becomes clear.

I wish they would implement the ability to stream to UPnP devices like a TV over ethernet/wireless. I can't watch movies without the audio compressor plugin. The music and movie sound engineers need to trade places. Going from whispers to ear blasting volumes does not make movies any better. And before you ask no I don't have a surround setup, only left and right Infinity Qe speakers. Surround sound is a cheap gimmick.
