A cartesian (like RepRap Mendel or this HYREL) based design always rattles itself apart and has very high stress on parts which increases as print speed increases. A SCARA (RepRap Morgan) or Delta (RepRap Rostock) have far lower stresses involved and shock from head movement is shared among multiple axis which decreases resistance/absorption problems and allows for higher print speeds.
They go on about design, and yet they failed to analyze what was the root cause of the faiures and opted to apply bandaids instead.
You drank too much of the Kool-Aid.

Actually, that's a bad idea. They should go an support another init project that's already underway, like OpenRC. This is just protest software by a single guy.
Systemd is a project that is already underway. What's your point?
Yes, there is some poorly named Open Source software but the majority is really on-par with proprietary shit.
Go use Nikola (or similar). You can easily maintain the website publicly within a Git repo!
Why not get just a router (I've been contemplating a Netgear WNDR-4300) and load it with OpenWRT or even DD-WRT?
If OP wanted to do video transcoding/HTPC duties I could see the use for a full PC but otherwise it is just a nuisence compared to a small, efficient, embedded system.
The main advantage of OpenWRT over $OTHER is it's packaging system and ability to install updates without reflashing. It has good documentation and a great community too.
It's not rewriting parted. Parted can't handle all modern storage technologies as it only deals with partitions which are only one part (pun intended) of the picture. In the [your favourite distro here] installer the UI calls out a *suite* of tools just like Blivet-GUI does. Previously in Fedora this was all piled into Anaconda - but now it is split out into this "Blivet-GUI" thing.
If you bothered to read the articles or browse the source you'd know that it depended on Blivet and subprocess calls to normal system utilities. Blivet has been around for at least two years already and has matured through its use in Anaconda. Anaconda has been around for many years and has always (AFAIK) depended on Python. Nearly every Linux distro (and other Unixes, OSX and even Haiku) come with Python by default. Most installation environments can use whatever they please without impacting the resulting system so even if you didn't want to install Python (or the more concerning GTK, IMO) you don't have to. This person was not engaging in NIH - they were simply writing a new GUI to an existing tool to allow for better integration, easier modification and fewer dependencies... Shock horror! OMG WHAT AN IDIOT RITE???
This mindless Red Hat bashing has really gone too far.
