This headline appeared in my Hacker News feed this morning: Why systemd is taking over. I fear it's right, systemd is taking over, and it's not good. I had a terrible time getting linux to work on my new laptop, which is why I have sworn to try Devuan on that laptop as soon as it's installable.
But what is systemd taking over, exactly? The next headline was
Chromebooks spank Windows
and might have added
while traditional linux laptops disappear from
view. Half my friends have switched to Mac laptops and last
September I couldn't find a single ten-inch laptop with ≥4G RAM and
capable of running linux. Not even one.
