It's like choosing a door on "Let's make a Deal".
Uselessd requires code patches to relax the coupling. That means the code was more tightly coupled before. It bolsters my claim that systemd is gratuitously coupled to make it harder to rip out OR that it is a poorly executed project. Hanlon suggests the latter, so I'll go with that.
Were your claim true, there wouldn't be a uselessd project.
We keep trying, and even changing our selection after the first goat is revealed, but we keep getting goats. I'm not sure any of the doors have a car behind them.
If they make you wait in jail longer than the average sentence would last, they should have to let you go free and clear.
I think it was two years ago in Atlanta that a judge ruled exactly that and let a lot of people awaiting trial for minor offenses go.
Tar and feathers come to mind...
Still, that's a LOOONG time to be locked in a cage like an animal compared to a misdemeanor and a fine.
Oh, I didn't mean to imply that anyone was being malicious. Unwise, perhaps.
Most of us call a mere 14,000 hits, even on a tiny VM, another day at the office. It really doesn't cost much to do a whois and send a quick log extract to the relevant abuse contact (if it's even in the top 10 offenders).
The current structure of the American taxi industry began in New York City when “taxi medallions” were introduced in the 1930s. Taxis were extremely popular in the city, and the government realized they needed to make sure drivers weren’t psychopaths luring victims into their cars. So, New York City required cabbies to apply for a taxi medallion license. Given the technology available in the 1930s, It was a reasonable solution to the taxi safety problem, and other cities soon followed suit. But their scarcity has made taxi medallions the best investment in America for years. Where they exist, taxi medallions have outperformed even the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index. In Chicago, their value has doubled since 2009. The medallion stakeholders are many and deep pockets run this market. The system in Chicago and elsewhere is dominated by large investors who rely on brokers to sell medallions, specialty banks to finance them and middle men to manage and lease them to drivers who own nothing at all. Together, they’re fighting to protect an asset that was worth about $2.4 billion in Chicago last year. “The medallion owners seem to be of the opinion that they are entitled to indefinite appreciation of their asset,” says Corey Owens, Uber’s head of global public policy.. “The taxi medallion in the U.S. was the best investment you could have made in the last 30 years. Will it go up forever? No. And if they expected that it would, that was their mistake.”"
Loser pays is dangerous in civil suits where a small entity sues a large entity. Even the most meritorious case can be lost.
In criminal cases, the prosecutor's office should be on the hook when the defendant isn't found guilty. Not just for legal fees, but for restitution for time spent incarcerated, loss of employment (if that happens), other consequential damages (eviction, missed payments, etc) and publicity to make it well known the defendant was not guilty.
My main assertion is that many forks are done with good intentions. This new fork, on the other hand, is not necessarily based on the best motivations.
Uselessd addresses not only the packaging but the excessively tight coupling of components.
The fact that a small team could make such substantial changes shows that it really is a lack of maturity in the design/implementation of systemd.
On the one hand, forking is what drives Free Software. It allows us to innovate, adapt software to new needs, etc. Without it, the FOSS community would not be as strong as it is.
On the other hand, Debian's board took a vote, and the anti-systemd people lost. Democracy happened. Democracy is good. Those people who created this fork are a bunch of malcontents that are whining because they didn't get their way. This isn't a "downstream branch" like Ubuntu, which strengthens the community by sending patches upstream. This is breaking up of a strong community, and it's now going to be inherently weaker.
That's actually dead simple to do. Most already have one that's been stable for years.
AMD is completely out of the game and the thrust of their current design work seems to have entirely ceded low power x86 to Intel in favor of better performing hybrid CPU/GPU products.
