By what strange theory does Slackware support systemd? And how is the conversation being "held back"? At least on LQ, I think it's been discussed to death to the point where there's really nothing new to say about it.

I can say one thing for certain: you do not know that anything concerning systemd in Slackware is likely or not. Hell, *I* don't.

Oh come on, you think your little niche is the whole world? A modern day "real programmer" wouldn't waste any time on a shitty 8bit processor.

I did my time in the 8bit 6502 days. I loved them. Those days are gone.

If you're not coding 64bit then you are stuck in the past. Tell yourself anything you want, but if you are still coding on a 8bit processor then you are horribly obsolete.

More pseudoscience. They say that they're not sure whether this means that porn shrinks your brain, or if the shrunken brain causes porn viewing. But, this leaves out the very real possibility that this correlation means nothing whatsoever. The site below collects correlations that look pretty convincing in the graphs, but quite obviously are unlikely to be cases of causation in either direction:

Dangerous? How about massively increasing the time it takes to do basic administrative tasks. I've spent so much time trying to do things in Server 2012 that were absolutely simple from NT 3.5 to Server 2008 that I am officially now rebelling against their stupid Metro interface. Everything is fucked up.

Try debugging an L2TP VPN connection using the silly new interface - you pass from old school to Metro to old school to Metro three times. It just ain't worth it.

They can make a new UI, but nobody's gotta accept or use the damn thing.

Even that Windows 8.1 laptop I was talking about in my parent post: I messed with that for two months. Two days ago I reloaded the thing with Windows 7. I have work to get done, don't have the time to mess with the latest Microsoft fad. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
