Whereas with a web server like Apache, you can use it with any init system; with systemd tools, you can not use them with any other init system. Logind is stuck with systemd.
I am really not convinced that UNIX is so better at "writing good code".
But you are still wrong.
The link in my sig could clear your ignorance, but you will not read it.
The point is that cron or apache or qmail can all be started with any init system. Systemd utils can't be started without a specific init system, which means logind (and by implication Gnome) can't be started without systemd. That is definitely against the unix way.
However, init can't start the system without the scripts, so in that way systemV depends on the scripts, not the other way around. The point is trivial like splitting hairs, but technically true.
Systemd is a collection of small executables each with a precise goal, in line with the UNIX philosophy.
I disagree that Systemd is in line with the UNIX philosophy (for various reasons), and anyone who disagrees either doesn't understand systemd, or doesn't understand the Unix philosophy.
The Unix philosophy in brief is "write good code."
Now imagine that a bunch of 'self-driving' cars are trying to pull over to the side of the freeway and alert their sleeping occupants that now it's time to get up and drive. How congested do you think the sides of the road will be?
Erm its already sorted out? There is a human in the car/truck you know for that exact reason. It detects an unusual situation and gets the fleshy to take over.
If a human has to be sitting alert in the driver's seat, waiting for the signal to take over, then it's not a self-driving car.
Though to be fair, the vast majority of those servers are crap. If I could get the 1995 internet back, I would take it.
You're making the (perhaps flawed) assumption that the purpose of such a mesh network is to access the greater Internet.
The summary kind of implies that people want to use a mesh to connect to the greater Internet.
After reading your post, I'm not really sure what other use you have for a mesh network, other than to connect to it.
For the life of me I do not understand all the BlackBerry hate on slashdot.
Because for a few years (until recently) Blackberry went through a really bad period. Now they are better, but no one knows that.
