Gentoo provides the choice to compile your system with USE=systemd or USE=-systemd. OpenRC provides the choice of enabling or disabling parallel boot as you wish as well as increasing verbosity and turning color messages on and off.

It's not about moving to a stable distro with a stable (patched) systemd. What Linux needs is to be able to compile it's own init system from source (from the stable branch) and be able to boot.
I tried on Gentoo to move from OpenRC to Systemd and got the same results, the system was unbootable. I moved back to OpenRC since systemd is not worthwhile fixing.
I will better wait for sys-apps/uselessd to give it another try.
You might want to contribute to http://linux-not-gnu.org/ . I have already been able to replace glibc with uClibc and now clang is able to fully replace gcc so it's only matter of replacing a couple more libs to get a 100% non-GNU operating system with a Linux kernel.
Actually I have been removing udev from all my gentoo vservers and replacing it with sys-fs/static-dev for dependency purposes.
Udev and eudev don't work anymore with kernel 3.2 (LTS) so I have been also replacing udev with sys-fs/static-dev on these servers too.
Money made of silver and gold is more trustful than money made of paper and ink and still as anonymous as the former.
For all those 100+ websites you should use your OpenID. if you don't have one It might be enough with your facebook account. Most of the sites now a days accept any of those so you don't have to memorize hundreds of passwords.
I have workers in differnt states of the country, some of whom I have never seen their face. I just need to know they are Online and they are delivering their work on time ad complete. The virtual office is just used for receiving bank statements and tax notifications. The first seven years of operation the virtual office was not even needed but I had to get one to be able to print my presentation cards with an address in a business zone instead of a residential zone like I was doing in the past.
Personal face-to-face meetings are sometimes required but they are way too expensive, cheapest plane tickets range between 1400 and 1800 MXN but some times I have had to pay 5,000 and some other times two or more people need to travel to the city the meeting is taking place on. So, after all that much expense and a sucessful meeting with a client not as upset as he was before the meeting, it's always a good oportunity to have some beers with co-worker friends before every one has to fly back to their homes and keep working as always.
I have some international clients but I don't have international workers (yet). I have had good experience working with international freelancers hired by a couple of my clients to participate in a particular project, but my experience with national workers has been as good enough as not to need to hire somebody outside of the country. It might happen some day but not yet.
to be the first ones to be prepared to show to the rest of the world how much their executices suck.
OVH is one of the largest hosting providers in the world. Censoring sites hosted in OVH could do some damage on France's economy because clients might want to move their sites to other countries..
Such secret documents are no longer secret. Everybody has access to them.
Since the documents are no longer secret, it's so stupid to keep them classified.
They should better declassify them and stop wasting their time on blocking documents everybody else has access to.
So I don't get the point.
Someone could just put a mirror somewhere else in the world (as allowed by the GPL) and allow other people to keep downloading it..
