Those of us with decades of experience in systems programming and systems administration will tell you, systemd is pure bloated badly engineered rubbish.
Those of us that have to stand the IT department will tell you that you practically always think that you know way more than you actually do and that we also know that your arrogance needs quite a bit of taming. Surely any reasonable persons agrees that someone that is ahead of a distro or a kernel programmer knows way more about how the various components of a linux distribution fit togheter than than some guy from the IT department that lives to make user's lives miserable.
Ubuntu, RedHat, Debian, CentOS
Not really, like stated, it's Ubuntu, RedHat, Debian, CentOS, etc, etc, Linus Torvald and a lot of people the contribute a lot to the Linux community that don't see any problem in using systemd... versus a bunch of vocal people that keep complaining about systemd but that don't do much/nothing for the Linux community.
We love Unixlikes which are actually "like Unix" ("The Unix Way", blah blah blah) not solely for aesthetic reasons, but for specific technical reasons which systemd compromises.
Then, why don't you create your own distro free of systemd? Nobody is forcing you to use it, and way smarted people than you, that actually create the most used distros, as well as the all mighty keeper of the Linux kernel, don't see a problem with systemd.
I'm tired of systemd being forced down my throat
Then go ahead and create your own distro free of systemd.
Sincerely, all this hate towards systemd looks like pure zealotry.
True, I know very little about the inner workings of systemd so I'm not qualified to vouch or to go against it. But well, I'm pretty sure that the collective intelligence of: Ubuntu, RedHat, Debian, CentOS, etc, etc, etc, creators that choose to use systemd in their distributions and even of Linus Torvald that already stated that systemd just isn't the anti-christ you try to make it look to be, surely surpasses yours or any of the systemd hatters that keep starting flame wars about it here in
True, like any piece of software, systemd surely must have issues (binary logs seem like one) that should be fixed or parts that may be improved, but all this constant bashing from some members against it, is just purely irrational.
Linux is open, if you hate systemd so much, just make your own distro and watch all the users flock to your world of paradise void of systemd... or not. In any case, normal users and readers of
...is that Firefox is getting really bad.
I just switched to Chrome about 1 month ago, I just couldn't stand Firefox bloat anymore. It's just slow and unreliable (try to open Amazon in Firefox and it slows to a crawl... a page seen by millions of people everyday) (try to open Atom editor Github pages and Firefox crashes more often than not).
Firefox developers really need to get down from their high horse and address the issues with the browser instead of keeping adding bloatware and obscure new codecs that only a small fraction of people actually use.
Ah true that, forgot that one but I'm glad to see I'm not alone in the Amazon issues as well. Truth be told, it doesn't crash Firefox, it only makes it crawl like a snail. Seriously, Firefox needs a very big overhaul, they keep adding features that only an handful of people cares about instead of fixing what's really wrong with it.
I'm keeping an eye out for Vivaldi. Although to say the truth, I could perfectly go with Chrome... if they had proper tab management and if they had tab lazy loading/unloading.
