And your qualifications for telling me what not to do are...?

Gtk3 is a fine, general purpose, toolkit that helps you solve a plethora of problems quickly. In addition, Gtk3 is used extensively behind corporate environments' doors to deliver good quality software for its users.

Thanks for the advise but I reserve the right to make my own choices.

I'm sorry but this is horrible .ini-style code. Poorly thought out and easy to make a big mess. What if you say "execStart" or "execstart" instead of the specific case you used here? I really dislike when we step backwards in time. This should be elegant and extremely simple. Upstart is that for now. I have no complaints with upstart.

I accidentally became a Linux security expert by being in the right place when hackers attacked.

* /me gets job as Network Engineer
* Evil hackers attack network
* FBI calls us (we were an ISP)
* Boss gives me full access to all Linux servers and firewalls

The rest is history.

I do not believe in certifications. People should study the material and use it on a daily basis.
