Comment: Dump SELinux and systemd, make it easier (Score 0) 208

Everyone immediately disables SELinux, and people need to reinvent how they manage the system, all for no real return, unless you're one of the .1% who those technologies are targeted at. Make your system normal Unix, not weird Unix, and people will stay interested. Companies don't like moving targets.

MREs are not survival rations they are combat rations. a few cases of refried beans and corn will be much cheaper and store far more days of fuel in a smaller space for a longer amount of time. and you can rotate your supply as you use them so they don't just sit there until they expire

It's a product of its times - with many more "computer science" people in the field, math says you're much more likely to run across crappy ones than you were before. (Not a bell curve issue, the bad ones are more memorable) Add in the H1B headwobble factor, and you have a lot of shitty java code, doing things because it can not because it should. Add in a corporate culture where time to market trumps reliability or maintainability, and you have a management philosophy that rewards the above behaviors.
Java is shitty because the world has turned.
