Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. This isn't the first time RHEL has used their commercial dominance to shove some purported latest and greatest "invention" since sliced bread down the throats of an increasingly larger population of sheep users and wannabe RHEL developer fanbois who equate new with better and base their assessments on marketing buzz while forgoing critical analysis.

And before you get all aggressive in your defense of Systemd, try a little reverse chronology. Yeah, step into the way back machine and take a little ride. Look at how many times these "great ideas" that reinvented some aspect of unix heritage led to more problems than they solved. And were ultimately replaced by the next great idea. I mean, RHEL has to have something to sell, afterall.

Nope. Not my first rodeo. My $0.02.

Peace--

P.S.; To reiterate, my issue is not so much with Systemd itself as an init replacement (although from my perspective there wasn't anything "broken" about the old init). My issue is that, like a virus, systemd is infecting all parts of linux. Journald. Networkd, udisks, and on and on... Result will be a monolithic os (M$ anyone?) that eschews long standing Unix/Linux tradition (read time proven) that WILL be exploited. And when that day comes, it will be disastrous.

I remember the OLD definition of "systeme D" ... which was how Foreign Legion private soldiers would take over a neighbourhood bar.

There's nothing wrong with Salix, it's a right-fine Slackware-based distro. Have you used it?

Salix is a GNU/Linux distribution based on Slackware that is simple, fast and easy to use, with stability being a primary goal. Salix is also fully backwards compatible with Slackware, so Slackware users can benefit from Salix repositories, which they can use as an "extra" quality source of software for their favorite distribution. Like a bonsai, Salix is small, light & the product of infinite care.

Desktop distro

Netrunner is a great distro, based on Kubuntu but so much better in my opinion. These guys are doing a great job, try it.

Totally agree. Despite being a long-term user of Slackware I must say that Salix OS never ceases to impress me for its simplicity and attention to detail.
