There's just no way it could be true. Default gentoo profile uses openrc(thus systemd profile would get less testing), and it takes some effort to convert default openrc install into systemd one. As someone who is using systemd with gentoo I can attest to that. The only way to implode systemd now would be to make another competing better init system(sysvinit with some bash clusterfuck bolted on doesn't qualify as init system anymore).

The author definitely doesn't understand science. It's not merely experimentation, but also ability to derive inner workings of the world without direct observation. Experimentation is part of it but you also need to figure out what is behind the results you get and choose correct experiments in the first place. Without this you can't discover things such as quarks and general relativity. They were theoretically predicted and only then found with appropriate experiments.

Yes, the bloated pigware Sun/Oracle has put into Solaris is against the Unix philosphy and bad. I speak as Sun Certified Systems Engineer with 24 years experience in Solaris/SunOS. Happy?

But linux distros have grown huge piles of bash cruft around sysvinit too in those years.. I don't think systemd would be more complicated. More like less so. That's the reason for distros wanting to adopt it. It's not possible to something as simple as an if block in a shell script without risking to do something subtly wrong and unportable.

You didn't contradict me. Whatever Putin does is unrelated to conflict between former soviet citizens in Ukraine. He could attempt to take advantage of it but that's it. It's Ukraine's government's job to settle their issue with their citizens peacefully and they failed it. So it need a new government again.

You got that wrong. Putin is merely a populist. Many people on Ukraine got shafted after partition of Soviet Union and they want to go back. All past Ukrainian governments just failed to give them what they want and they got tired of it. It's not Russian government's fault that they failed to find a peaceful arrangement, but it's not surprising it's trying to exploit the situation. It's just taking pointers from US's government.

Natural laws have no pity.
