LXer: Systemd Test Day on Tuesday 2010/09/07


Published at LXer:

Itís test day time again, folks, and this oneís a biggie! You may have read about the brand new initialization system, systemd, written by Lennart Poettering. At the moment, weíre planning to use it as the default initialization system for Fedora 14. Obviously, this is a bold step with a fairly new piece of code.

Not any bolder than usual. Fedora is bleeding-edge, Red Hat tests all sorts of new pieces of code in it. Fedora was also the first to try nouveau and others ...

Fedora was first?

Can someone explain how a precompiled distrobution can end up being the first to do anything?

Maybe they are the first to ship it in a precompiled version, but surely gentoo, and users of LFS will have had these before? (I'm afraid I dont know of any other "from source" distros).


Or is there some vital point I'm missing here? I also saw the same thing on slashdot saying Fedora was for the truely cutting edge linux development and can't see how they figured that out either.

Other distros try to use stable software, and don't often include experimental software until later in the development cycle. Fedora is for sure the most bleeding-edge binary distro.

And Ubuntu comes in close second, not to mention introduces bugs that wouldn't normally exist in the same software in other distros.

Yeah I often think Ubuntu and its derivatives are trying to mimic Windows by including rickety software marketed for production use.
