Someone mod the parent post up. Linux 2.6 is bigger than Linux 2.4. systemd is also much larger than init.

From my router:

root@Linksys E1200 v1:/sbin# ls -Fsl init
        12 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12635 May 27 2013 init*

12KB for init vs. 1.3MB for systemd. systemd privides no tangible benefit over init for a router (or at least to justify its size increase).

I ran into this issue since I'm on AT&T. Originally bought a Samsung Galaxy
  S 5 and promptly returned it because it's currently not rootable. So then I bought an HTC One M8 when I found out there's manufacturer support for rooting. You can also wait for the Cyanogemod Official phone (looks pretty nice too)

Also driving slower, not driving full throttle and hard braking to a stop light/sign, etc.

I used to have an 2008 MkV Jetta with the 2.5L gasoline engine. The government said I should be getting 21/29mpg city/highway. My best was 46 mpg driving from Sacramento to San Diego. Now I have a Prius V, and I get better gas mileage than that without even trying.

They include the DeHaviland Comet - a fantastic aircraft which set the standard in the airliner industry for decades to come. It did suffer from a design flaw which caused several crashes, but those crashes helped us learn a lot more about metal fatigue and the structural integrity of aircraft, and lead directly to improved safety in later designs. It was also fixed as soon as it was identified. Suggesting that the Comet was one of "the worst planes" - or that it should have never have flown - is just plane ignorant.

Thank you for not putting in "no pun intended." How I hate that phrase. Now I look like the asshole for pointing it out.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
