I have never used Uber. My friend did miss her plane.

How often have you seen the GPS "break" on a phone ?

Fairly often.

Rarely in a car, but quite often when on foot in a large city.

Anyway, that's not the point -- what kind of cretin would even need a GPS app to find of the major Paris airports?

'm just shocked at the way folks here are laying down and how fast this is rolling over tradition and history, especially things that have NEVER before been thought to be racist or troubling for anyone.

For anyone? Are you sure? Or do just mean "for anyone white enough to count"?

. i am very pro-austerity and pro-EU/EUROzone, i hope that in the next weeks our current goverment will loose the support so our previous goverment can take control again, continue repaying the loans and you know... do what it must be done. Keep in mind: Greece is a poor state with rich citizens!

So pay your fucking taxes already. There is no way the rest of us are going to subsidize you at the rate of 36 billion euros a year.

(Actually, now we've got you to pay off all the debt you owed to our private banks we're going to throw you to the wolves any day now).

Small parts of systemd have Linux components.

No. Systemd has no kernel code, it uses standard Linux interfaces, open to all. Even if kdbus goes in it will not be reserved to systemd.

Overall, systemd is an extra-kernel computer system management system.

True even without the "overall"

Poettering+team once tried to submit some changes to Linux that broke Linux and Torvalds chewed them out for this.

No. systemd read the /proc/cmdline file, a linux interface available to all user-level programs. It also wrote to the system log, a linux interface available to all user level programs running as root. Systemd included no code in the kernel

He would've accepted such changes had the team submitted their work in a way that wasn't broken as it was.

As the systemd team didn't ask for any code to be included in the kernel (then) there was no question of Linus accepting it or not. He claimed he would refuse any code submissions from Kay, who hadn't made any submissions for over a year.

Not only is your interpretation of Linus's feelings absurd:

"When it comes to systemd, you may expect me to have lots of colourful opinions, and I just don't," Torvalds told iTWire in an interview. "I don't personally mind systemd, and in fact my main desktop and laptop both run it.

-- Linus Torvalds

But your claims of systemd developers "butthurt" are also ridiculous:

For his part, Sievers appeared unmoved by Torvalds' outburst.
