I don't want my autonomous car talking to ANYTHING that I don't control/manage/filter. I don't care what some unknown car reported, I don't trust that car. I'm no member of the tinfoil hat brigade, but I do work in software security and I assure you - IT IS INSANE to presume that ANY automaker is going to produce software that isn't trivially easy to pwn in the next decade. They all roll their own solutions (or have someone produce a custom solution) and using cryptography as an example - don't roll your own, even if you *really* know what you're doing, you're likely to regret it.

No he doesn't. He addresses a specific negative attribution about systemd in that it is anti-UNIX because it keeps everything in one repository. He doesn't claim that this is the only reason anyone states it is anti-UNIX.

He's certainly being selective in what he is addressing, but surely he can't be expected to discuss everything anyone ever complained about involving systemd in this interview...?
