Straw man. Most islamic/muslim majority states are not 'fundamentalist'. Even in Iran elements of secular state and democracy coexist with Sharia law and religious authority, similarly in Iran studying math and science is encouraged month both genders. I anything Islamic fundamentalist states and quasi-state entities are in the extreme minority pointing to Islam's ability to adopt to the modern world.

Systemd is the last nail in the coffin for Linux, I'm switching to *BSD> The problem with Linux I think is that unlike the BSDs it never head any real UNIX roots. It started from scratch as a UNIX-like hack in Linuse's basement, stuck with following UNIX for awhile and now it's just becoming Windows-like.

You idea if a "market success" is to sell me a binary without source. So I will be stuck depending on your crappy expensive support and early upgrade cycle (if I want any bugs fixed, as you will surely roll bug fixes into commercial upgrades). This is a problem I have, as a user, with non GPL code.
