Submission + - Why Designer Of Linux System Ignoring "Unix Philosophy"?

An anonymous reader writes: The Unix philosophy is philosophical approaches to developing software based on the experience of leading developers of the Unix operating system. FLOS (FreeDesktop.org+Linux kernel+OS) is a nearly opposed Unix philosophy design, with design concepts like the, "avoids scripts, prefers to split tasks into compiled logic interacting with logic-less configuration files, ease of machine manipulability over human manipulability, communication over D-Bus rather than sockets/pipes, features specific to Linux (Gnome3 uses technologies that are not available to BSDs )and ignores portability and so on."
