My understanding is that move away from Presto and to webkit/blink was used as excuse for changing the overall Opera vision, either that or new Opera devs are too incompetent to properly re-implement the vision. Either way, Opera founder just returns to reassert his vision.

Of course they are, but they aren't reference compilers.

At some point having d overlay led to getting warnings during portage sync and what-not, so I removed it.

All in all I just didn't consider it interesting enough to study even. I'm more interested in a true paradigm shift rather than another iteration of C++ which already is good enough for my taste. So I still have haskell overlay and actually do learn haskell :P

All people are different. The more you know individuals the more you understand that boy/girl divide is fake. There's only one human mind and it's gender neutral in principle. People tend to make stuff up, finding connections where they don't exist. Thinking that having a high testosterone level would magically lead you to play with trucks is pure superstition. There may be other effects of testosterone but if you provide such silly examples then it kinda undermines the point to me.

Toy example is especially ridiculous since there's no way a kid would know their significance unless adults tell them what those toys are images of, attaching their own gender identity in process too, perhaps subconsciously. Without adult indoctrination a kid wouldn't know a difference between a cube, toy care or cutlery shaped toys.

Number one can't be addressed within kernel community in any way. No point to even try. It should be addressed within our whole culture, by revising our notion of gender roles. Linus works with adults. He can do nothing to counteract gender imbalance that was created via indoctrination that starts at early childhood.

No, Linux kernel doesn't work as OS framework. It's a kernel. Linux OSes never had a proper OS framework, many things can't be done in distro-agnostic way currently. systemd can fix it. kernel can't. Do not suggest bloating the kernel further by dumping this functionality on it, Linus will have none of it! Dealing with Kay Sievers and Lennart Poettering is lesser evil for him :P

Once again it's irrelevant because there's a lot of useless software running already, some even more useless than journald too. I see no need to single out journald like that. And you failed to show that it's in any way different than coreutils. Such criticism of systemd is bullshit, period. You can prove that anything does too many things and does them poorly by changing your definition of 'things' and 'poorly'.

When I dropped openrc parallel booting was disabled there by default and not recommended to use due to bugs, no idea whether it changed now. I had trouble figuring out how to improve parallelism, like to ensure that dhcp isn't waited by some unrelated boot step. With systemd I used their way to generate svgs graphs of boot process that show what runs in parallel with what and when.

Only their fear prevents them from deeply understanding it. They already decided that it's beyond them so they'll unconsciously sabotage their efforts to understand it. Yet proper understanding of underlying logic and proofs is more efficient than mechanical memorization, thus people with deep understanding have an easier time getting the job done.

HOLY MACRO!
