Fiorina is completely incompetent and never accomplished anything worthwhile.
Yet she became extremely wealthy, and influential. For reasons I cannot explain, a lot of people still listen to her.
Apple has always been a dickish a company, and Jobs was the worst dick of them all.
That Apple pulled a fast one, on somebody as incapable as Fiorina, is hardly surprising.

Those two statements seem contradictory. I think systemd kills POSIX.
Why is MATE "BULLSHIT?"
Seems to work fine for me.
Maybe not quite as good as Gnome2, but close.
Gnome3 is an abomination.
I can hardly believe they don't have them.
Art imitating life.
1) The only thing that systemd might do faster is boot. Since Linux servers are not booted that often, that is a trifling advantage, at best. Certainly not worth breaking everything that works.
2) Systemd does not always boot faster. Only under certain circumstances.
3) More resource intensive generally means slower on the same hardware. Systemd may boot faster, but it runs slower.
4) There are ways to improve boot speeds without breaking everything that works.
This has been going on for years, and has years more to go. This is a long term strategy.
Why has Red Hat been replacing standard Linux components with Red Hat components, when the Red Hat stuff is worse?
Why isn't systemd optional? It is just an init replacement, right? Why does Red Hat care which init you use?
Why is systemd being tied to so many other components?
Why binary logging? Who asked for that?
Why throw away POSIX, and the entire UNIX philosophy? Clearly you do not have to do that just to replace init.
Why does Red Hat instantly berate anybody who does not like systemd? Why the barrage of ad hominem attacks systemd critics?
I think there is only one logical answer to all of those questions, and it's glaringly obvious.
I think we should get rid of Gnome, and work on MATE, or something like it.
