That the best you could come up with?
Its just another fashion trend for sheeple. Most of the idiots getting covered in tattoos right now, in 20 years time - when they look about as trendy as orange flared trousers and Maori Dragon on their arm with all the baggy skin now looks like he ate too many goats and fell down the mountain hitting every boulder on the way down - will be the ones whining that they can't afford the laser treatment to have them removed.
Are some people planning on wearing them in their mouths then?
...renewables are going to have their work cut out for themselves just supplying a majority percentage of the power for national electricty grids. I'm not sure where they think the extra renewable power to do this will come from.
Now if they plugged the process into a nuclear power plant OTOH...
Of course the big question is how efficient is the process? Is it more efficient than just using the electricity to charge up batteries in an electric car for example?
Saidly too many people are believing this delusion. I can't help thinking thats one reason why systemd is taking over - its not that its any good , its who wrote it. Which is mystifying given what a POS PulseAudio was/is.
"I don't have a fucking clue and hope to bluff my way out"
Nice try. No cigar. Not even a butt end.
Oh right. Because the systemd config is sooo simple in a situation like that.
"And your vision of systemd is wrong by the way : educate yourself please."
How about you tell me then. Apparently you're such an uber admin that surely it'll be no problem to list the advantages of systemd compared to init. Right?
Never underestimate the power of the herd mentality.
"but linux distros, largely run for free by hobbiests?"
Its not 1995 anymore.
"We've adopted it on an increasingly large scale and we are seeing the rewards already."
List them. And be specific - no vague handwaving waffle please.
Its like asking whether you'd preferred to be mauled by a rottweiler or a pitbull.
Both are just change for changes sake and neither bring much new to the table. Sure the scripts for init could get messy but they worked, everyone was familliar with them and if no major issues have cropped up since 1991 (or 1970 for unix) then its a fair bet its a reliable sub system.
But no , the "Not Invented Here" meme popped up its ugly head again and some know it alls decided they could reinvent the wheel better. Well so far the jury is still out on that.
Its a surprise for the Millenials who seem to edit this site these days - they'll all be furiously looking up what "snail mail" and "post office" mean.
Someone always drags it out in any discussion like this as if its some kind of killer quote that nullifies any further discussion.
Newsflash: People since the dawn of time have given away freedom for security except in one specific situation - which is known as anarchy. And trust me, giving people the freedom to so whatever they damn well please with no consequences is NOT a good thing.
And yes, my *security* is partly being protected from those of criminal intent and therefor I am happy with laws restricting criminal behaviour even though it also restricts my freedom.
To sum up: Franklin was full of it.
"This is the cost of change, evolution and rapid development. Things get left behind, even if they were good products/services. "
Who says its a cost we want to pay? Millennials might be happy blowing money to upgrade to the latest Ooo Shiny! tech every 2 years but some of us have more important things to spend it on. I'm not going to be some consumer sheep/fanboy upgrading all the time just to keep some corporations bank balance in the black.
"Do you recall the last time you saw a "dumb" DVD or Blu-Ray player for sale that did not have "those" features?"
I bought a Sony blue ray player a couple of years back and half the network "apps" didn't even work out the box. Personally I didn't give a damn , I just wanted something to play spinning disks, but IMO it does show the contempt manufacturers hold their customers in these days.
