Dude, that "concept" is unix, linux is just some dodgy norwegians clone of it. Check out a proper unix like OS X, you will be amazed. Unix *is* beautiful.

I would also like to add BSD's to the list, for the more technically minded. They are proper UNIXes, through and through, not some clumsy, systemd riddled, Norwegian imitation.

Dude, it literally says BSD at the top of the man pages. It doesnt get more unix than that.
>>
>>51530891
You shouldn't even have to be that. People who are heavy into tech but have nothing to do with programming should be allowed to benefit from it. I'm very heavy into AV science but my lack of ability to compile my own software and fix errors has always held back my ability to use Linux.

I completely agree. Its the issue linux has had from the start. Beleive it or not, its got better, but at some point you still have to get your hands dirty.

Sorry, made a typo.
>>
>>51530774
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

This is a standard library function implemented as a perl call. This is so retarded I have no words to describe it. It's like calling your car mechanic whenever you need to turn your steering wheel.

Try void if you want something systemd-less

rinit is great
>>
>>51535753
>systemd-less

No, don't go systemd-less. Systemd is good and adheres to the socalled UNIX bullshit philosophy.
>>
>>51535765
why would i use a meme init, anon?
>>
>>51535770
It's nice, fast, easy to diagnose, werks. Very good init.
>>
>>51535770
First off, systemd is not an init system, it has an init system as part of the systemd suite. systemd is a project to build a standardised lowlevel userland for Linux. The project is pretty comprehensive and it delivers a lot of functionality under one umbrella. It does away with a lot of older, often undermaintained software packages, which were traditionally used to assemble a low level userland.

Which is where the contention comes from, as a system suite systemd is restrictive for Unix virtuosi who are used to tailor a system with wit, ingenuity, a lick and a prayer and a couple dozen of unrelated packages. systemd makes such knowledge useless.

The faction that thinks that systemd is Linux's Hiroshima, finds all the added functionality bloat, unnecessary and dangerous, as it is all under development in one project.

All the systemd jokes stem from the comprehensiveness as a low level system suite. People against it love to joke that one day systemd will write its own kernel.

There is a lot of FUD and hate going around. Some arguments do have merit, a lot of eggs in one basket is certainly true, but as with all things in life, it depends which tradeoff you prefer. Do you want a suite of well designed software, working closely together, so that system management is streamlined or do you want the complete freedom to tailor your own low level system with a lot of time tested, interchangeable components.

You can use systemd as just an init with your own shit to handle ntp or whatever if you prefer, so actually, this is not even the choice presented.
