openrc and any other proper init system, log an error. user sees error, user fixes error

systemD, constantly restarts all three services. filling up log files, and grinding the system to a halt.
user can not see error because the disc is busy ballooning the log file to gigabytes in size as systemD restarts services A,B,and C when B crashes on startup every time.

I used to hate pulseaudio too, until i was forced to use it to get the games i was buying off of steam to have sound.
Then I found out that if you disable or ignore the network sound feature it mainly boots linux into the modern sound land windows has been since vista. per application volume and speaker configs. per application outputs and recording inputs. it just works.

Nope, it brings DLL hell to linux.
Sure you get the developers environment, but every program can and will depend on different versions of the same library.
This is what DLL hell was in windows. Program A needed version A of msvexample.dll while program B needs version D, version A is newer but overwriting it causes program B from working so they put in both. You now have two versions of the same library and just like windows you are still vulnerable to any problem in the library because program B needs version D.
Even windows is moving away from this system and ubuntu and LP are hell bent on turning linux into a shoddy version windows 9X.


Ubuntu Gets Container-Friendly "Snappy" Core 149

judgecorp writes: Canonical just announced Ubuntu Core, which uses containers instead of packages. It's the biggest Ubuntu shakeup for 20 years, says Canonical's Mark Shuttleworth, and is based on a tiny core, which will run Docker and other container technology better, quicker and with greater security than other Linux distros. Delivered as alpha code today, it's going to become a supported product, designed to compete with both CoreOS and Red Hat Atomic, the two leading container-friendly Linux approaches. Shuttleworth says it came about because Canonical found it had solved the "cloud" problems (delivering and updating apps and keeping security) by accident — in its work on a mobile version of Ubuntu.

It's biology.
The studies were done with babies less than a year old as to rule out cultural influence.
It is also the fact that different hormones affect the human brain differently, a brain awash with testosterone will be structurally different than one awash in estrogen and progesterone.
Keep in mind just a change in the level of serotonin can radically change someone's behavior.

This is the swedish paradox. The more equal the society the more likely that the sex's flock to 'traditional' roles.
The only difference seems to be in reaction to this, in sweden they decided to study it and found out, *gasp* human brains between the sexs are pretty much wired differently. Who would of thought of that in a species with sexual dimorphism. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

In the united states how ever, the lack of women in STEM jobs and the lack of men in Nursing is seen not as a result of hard wired biological differences. But some kind of 'oppression' like women bullying men who go into nursing, and some invisible boogeyman called the 'patriarchy' calling women 'bossy' and making them not want to be leaders and such.
