I have installed openSUSE onto my laptop. Then I removed my secondary HDD, and voila, fstab thusly broke. Which made systemd throw a fit, constantly forcing an emergency mode - which was, in turn, bugged (systemd launches two shells on the same terminal, so everything becomes garbled). I was left with no option but to boot from a fricking rescue DVD.

At that point, I have deduced that the logical conclusion was popping my Win7 DVD back in.

Interestingly enough, server-grade Linux OSes we use (SLES, SUSE) don't seem to exhibit this behaviour. Still, that matters little for when I can't use them.

I dunno, I found debugging kinda difficult when the default shipping systemd utterly breaks emergency mode (launching 2 shells that are competing for input/output).

I've also seen a test server lose the binary logs COMPLETELY when the power was cut. We had to read the good 'ol /var/log/messages, but that's clearly not the systemd way, is it now?

A truly unexpected shutdown (kernel panic or hardware fault) can leave systemd log files so corrupt you can't grab anything meaningful from them.

As for text files, they are obviously just backwards-compatibility junks left in so the old crowd doesn't get too noisy. I mean, binary format is the future and should be embraced any any non-reactionary admin, amirite?

Personally, I'm not THAT thrilled; I'm more interested in AR than VR. As for the imporvement: it would've happened, sooner or later. Technology marches on, etc, etc.

Oh, and I loathe facebook. DK lost any appeal to me when they sold out.

To the systems programmer, users and applications serve only to provide a test load.
