As far as I'm concerned, the DVD subscription has never *not* made sense. I've had a 3-disc-at-a-time subscription since 2002. The streaming service was pretty much useless when it was introduced. That wasn't much of a problem when it was a freebie, but when they started charging $8/month for something I never used, I dropped it pretty quickly.
Don't underestimate the bandwidth of three Blu-rays in your mailbox.
Ah well... Let's hope these people doing this work are not subjected to too many death threats or terrorist attacks because of their findings. Some folks work really hard to keep other people in line and some folks are willing to die for their religious beliefs. Hopefully that does not happen here.
You know they will. This will be considered blasphemy in the highest degree, even by the non-fundamentalists. They're marked men.
If you want more ports get a switch
Where are you supposed to plug in that switch when the only Ethernet port on the device is in use for your WAN connection?
You know what Einstein said about your repetitions of the word "bigotry".
Perhaps a better analogy would've been to Inigo Montoya commenting on Vizzini's usage of "inconceivable."
I was under the impression that Gentoo still had OpenRC as default while allowing the selection of systemd as an alternative.
systemd is available as an option, but (as you noted) it's not the default and you're not forced into using it. (Except maybe if you want GNOME, later versions of which depend on systemd? I've never used GNOME, so I'm not 100% positive on that.)
21 you can finally buy beer, but still cant rent a car
I was 19 the first time I rented a car. Mine was in the shop for collision repair (dumbass backed into me in a parking lot right as I arrived at work). There weren't as many options and they charged more per day than if I had been 25, but I was able to rent a car. It beat biking through the summer heat to get to work.
It's almost time to throw popular Linux distros in the garbage can and just go to BSD
...or you could just switch to one of the many Linux distros that haven't been contaminated with systemd. Gentoo, perhaps?
The value of a program is proportional to the weight of its output.
