Comment: Luddites (Score 1) 464

I find it amusing that articles such as these that push the envelope of technology appear on Slashdot and then the luddites come out of the woodwork. Particularly amusing is the fact that we all entrust our lives to technology and computers on a regular basis, including in the airplanes that we have been flying in for years. The sad part is that the vast majority of you will meet your end in a dreadfully boring fashion or possibly in an automobile collision with a drunken slack-jawed yokel, but hardly any one of you will go down in a glorious, flaming plane crash.

I thought the point was that it starts all the system services in parallel as much as possible thereby speeding up overall boot time significantly? Correct me if I am wrong.

My Arch Linux systems seem to boot much faster since they moved to systemd. I will admit I was pretty much lost when first working with it but I chalked that up to unfamiliarity and haven't had to touch it much since. Then again, I'm using a Debian 7 install right now and it boots quite fast and does not use systemd.

Have a listen to '...And Justice For Jason'. Some fine gentleman did a masterful job of recording bass tracks over the original songs. I can't listen to the vanilla album anymore.

If you do something right once, someone will ask you to do it again.
