I honestly can't say. I've only been messing with it in a testing/dicking around capacity, and haven't been swimming in free time for the past month or so. Hopefully someone lucky enough to be doing it full time will post and let us know.

Still, it's a damn sight better than "make buildworld" was (yes, it's been that long)

whether we want a better functioning OS or an OS that adheres to the mindset that I think attracted many of us to Linux in the first place

There's precious little evidence that systemd makes for "a better functioning OS" and plenty that the people behind systemd don't even understand how the OS functions -- and that's on a practical level, not a "OMG UNIX Philosophy is so 1980s" level.

I'd say it's more of "bypassing the absolute worst of each worlds." The closer I can get to "apt-get upgrade", the better. But it looks like pkgng might have that mostly covered for most of what I'd need to set up.

When crunch-time passes, I'll experiment a little more deeply into it, but I'm glad to see there's been so much improvement. I loved me some FreeBSD back in the day.

I finished that one just a few weeks ago. Thankfully the next one is due out in a month or so. :)

Hopefully there's not too much of a lag for the audiobook - they make the 4 hour drive to Dr. Girlfriend's place up north much more bearable, and Kobna Holbrook-Smith definitely does the writing justice.

Yes, indeed. I'm reading the fourth book (Broken Homes) now and I'm really enjoying his writing style, the setting, the characters -- pretty much the whole package.

And they're just fun to read. :) That's frequently missing these days, with all the crapsack countries and grimdark being all the rage.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing for money.
