What's it like to be a sucker who lets his bosses exploit his passion for computing for profit? You see, I'm one of those older programmers who keeps up in order to stay "employable", but has no passion for the work. I only do it because it pays better than cleaning toilets, and I'm good at it.

So what of Lennart calls it "Core OS"? John Romero said he was going to make you his bitch. It's hype/marketing talk. So what if it does replace a far amount of user space on distros that use it? That doesn't prove that systemd will replace the kernel. Furthermore, the time to complain about kernel functionality being moved into user space was when DBus and udev were new. In the meantime, I find that Arch Linux forum post does a good job of explaining systemd's merits.

I am an American worker. Fear-driven development is the status quo. Fear-driven work is the status quo. I fear poverty. I fear destitution. I fear being unable to have any time to actually live because the struggle to maintain my continued existence takes all of my time and energy. Getting a new job doesn't help, because I'm still a wage slave. Forming a startup won't save me, because equity doesn't pay the rent.
