I'm thinking about systemd lately and watching a few talks I think mac fags are the ones who will benefit from the systemd fiasco. Macos is a bloatware piece of shit but they are developing a more stable debloated release and soon people will buy mac hardware to install these distros and laugh at the linux community
This is a nightmare situation to be honest.
Even TrueOS which has many bugs and problems can become the alternative to normies

How sad it is that kids today have to use silly phrases like "fud" and "memes" someone points out that there's more than one way to do things. Grow up.

There are quite a few good reasons to not want systemd running on your machine. This is specially true if it's a server. Things like errors because of "you are trying to restart this service too fast" are just stupid beyond belief and also very annoying. Say you leave a typo in a config file and try to start apache and it fails and you fix that and try to start it again - but it won't because systemd and now you have to wait until that stupid thing decides it's been "long enough" since you last tried to start apache.

Reminder that Debian still works just fine without systemd, as long as you don't install a de which depends in it (gnome?)

Looking for an os with latest releases hence arch based.

I've never messed with windows 10 before, and havent attempted dual booting on my main rig (8.1) so just assumed that uefi is mandatory for windows 10 function, like how setting sata from IDE to AHCI will fuck with the os

different issue, methinks; also, no samba shares involved in it
seems to be some kind of ordering issue that's causing unmounting to be useless at shutdown, until it hits a ~30s timeout and just forces the thing

Did Devuan manage to get Stretch out? I didn't think they did. Which makes it just oldstable with sysv installed. and its a bit pointless to have a fork when you can just install vanilla Debian, apt install sysv, copy a few files, and then uninstall sysd and reboot.

Way, dist-upgrade and that's about it. If you manage to delete systemd from ubuntu it could be another alternative let's hope they don't add spyware on 18.04

what argument? that you have gripes with your inability ot use superior software?

the fact that unit files are not nearly as "powerful" as the shell script retarded aids, that non systemd inits use, makes it leagues more advanced.

combine that with the fact it centralizes management of facilities like fs namespacing, cgrouping (including cpu timesharing quotas) and sysv and runit fags look really retarded.
