If that were the case then Debian GNU/kFreeBSD would be done too.
It's not just games that people run on phones. And regardless, Microsoft wants (read; needs) people to release programs in general for Windows mobile, so they seem to be going the path of making it easy for people to just hit "compile" and be able to deploy it.
Think tablets and phones (Windows Tablets and phones)
Everyone knows BIE is a myth...(although it might be a good campaign platform).
We don't work on mainframes, servers, and desktops anymore? Sorry, didn't get that memo (and neither did my paycheck). Laptops are largely treated the same as desktops.
Most distros use GNOME. Most distros use PulseAudio. Most distros use NetworkManager And now, most distros use systemd. I'll let you guess who pushed most of these? Guess who is responsible for PulseAudio, NetworkManager, systemd, libxml, gnulib, and very large portions of the GNOME project? And who is the only player that matters for commercial Linux (Oracle doesn't count since OEL is rebuilt RHEL)? Keep telling yourself Red Hat is just
/etc/sysconfig and RPM (actually, RPM IS the standard package manager for Linux based on the Linux Standard Base)
I'm pretty sure they know what they're doing - but that doesn't mean they are acting in everyone's best interest either.
As a UNIX admin, I actually do very much dislike the Linux world these days. Working with IRIX, Solaris, and HP-UX made me that way.
I'm down with that.
I did try it, and reproduced the his results on Fedora 21.
When you understand that Red Hat controls the Linux world, and what they do everyone will follow (with the exception of Slackware and Gentoo), you will understand.
Except, with so many init alternatives availible (upstart, launchD, SMF) why did we need to add another? And, there is absolutely nothing wrong with BSD init.
And anything but portable to other operating systems. We also have an example above of systemd ignoring output to stderr. Not cool.
Try the unity-tweak-tool (I've been giving Ubuntu a run for the past week or so) (apt-get install unity-tweak-tool) - under "Unity" click "Search" and uncheck "Check Online Sources"
So you say. By your logic there is nothing wrong with me using Windows 2000 or OS 9 either.
