So this does *not* ship the things that are needed to run Gnome
I think that's a feature
especially since much of the journald code still needs to stick around:
Well that right there shows that systemD is not modular and flexible
On the other hand, half of the other national leaders can bike to work if they want to. Granted, terrorists aren't gunning for the leader of Norway the way they would be for the US president.
The leader of Norway is a king. One is not so quick to shoot a king, they are royalty, you see.
but getting out of bed is far less likely to leave you a pancake.
I agree and am happy to see this fork. As unpopular as it may make me, I actually like the initd functionality of systemd. I'm fine with using and writing the old init scripts, but systemd unit files are simple, concise, and powerful enough for my needs.
This is understandable, but there are much, much simpler ways of achieving this goal than systemD.
One of the interesting things about systemD discussions. If you watch, people who criticize say things like, "that's an ugly hot mess of architecture!" People who support it answer by saying, "the features are so good!" You can see those two things are somewhat arguing past each other.
You captured both sides of the argument in a single post, so good job.
a two-way databinging model like angular's is a specific mvc use case where the good old observer pattern makes a lot of sense.
I'm not sure that's true.....
"reactive" is basically the same thing, with a cooler name and applied indiscriminately to everything else.
That's definitely true
Obviously the manifesto is so short on details that it can be interpreted in many ways.
Short on detail but long on words. Compare it to the Agile manifesto which has few words, but communicates the ideas very clearly. When you read that, you understand the underlying principles of agile. This manifesto has more words, but still manages to clearly get its idea across.
When it comes to the manifesto linked in the article, as you mention it is short on detail. Specifically, who doesn't want to have a responsive system? Have you ever met anyone who said, "I think I will build a website. I want it to take 15 seconds for the pages to load." Saying you want your site to be responsive is so generic as to be meaningless.
The part that really makes me laugh is the part where they say it will have no bottlenecks. That has been the goal of designers since the day of Von Neumann. He was certain he would design his computer without bottlenecks. Once again, it's something that everyone wants.
The biggest thing they have that isn't generic there is that they require message passing. That seems like a weird requirement to me, but I'm sure they have a reason.
On the surface it seems easier, because things happen automatically, without having to be explicitely defined. The part I'm struggling with is how to keep the code clean and readable with all this stuff happening automatically. There's probably a way to do it, but I haven't found it yet.
The market is fully capable of pricing the fact that Alibaba stockholders don't actually own a direct claim on Alibaba's Chinese assets and can't elect its board. Truth be told, shareholders don't "own" any company; they own whatever rights are specified in the share agreement........
True comfort for shareholders comes not from legal boilerplate, but from incentives. Alibaba founder Jack Ma could take the $22 billion raised Friday and stiff his foreign partners. That's a risk. But his self-interest is otherwise. He wants a strong stock as a currency for acquisitions. He wants stock options to motivate his increasingly global management team. He wants easy liquidity for himself and other insiders.
when investors begin to worry about the actual rights specified in a share agreement, it usually means something has already gone seriously wrong.
Alibaba is probably as good as any stock. If things go wrong, things go wrong.
to Islamization of America
I don't see how much has happened as far as Islamization of America. Islam is still a super-small minority in America, right? I'd bet the Hindu population is growing faster, and even that's small.....
