Your righteous indignation might have been more inspiring were it not being bogged down by your semi-literacy and incompetence.

I am not impressed with ownCloud's heavy-handed approach to dictating what distros can provide in their repositories,

Did you read a different message than the one everyone's sharing around the internet, or do you not know the difference between a command and a request: an actual request, at that, not even one delivered at the barrel of a lawyer.

Considering the biggest part of the userbase for Owncloud is privacy- and security-minded sysadmins (running their own rather than trusting the outside providers), I'd say not wanting them to get pwned because Ubuntu's serving out stale versions is a pretty good thing. They're not the package mantainers, and it's Ubuntu who doesn't seem to give a shit here (there's no good excuse for 'we can't take the unmaintained exploitable package out of the unmaintained repository).

I'm not impressed with the attitudes on display in the ownCloud community and I am very unhappy with the way ownCloud's software wiped out all my work files when I upgraded to the "safe" version. If ownCloud was really interested in the sfety of their users and the users' data, this would have been handled much differently.

And thus, the fledgling learns the value of "backups before updates", after landing flat on his beak.

Then just make sure she actually applies herself to whatever career that is.

The last thing anyone in development needs to deal with these days is someone who "converts" 12-hour to 24-hour time using 13 chained if-then statements, and wails about being "picked on for being a woman" when told to redo it in a fashion that's not mind-meltingly incompetent (and, sadly, no, that anecdote's not hyperbole).

If they are a very small minority, how come so many people want to mention them at every chance they get?

I'm making efforts to remind myself that they *are* a minority (it gets tricky to remember on the net these days), and they are a very, very 'vocal' minority. Vocal, and generally full of shit.

It is interesting that this is happening in a society that every objective power metric is male dominated.

See? Lind of like this one.

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.
