Re: SystemD - A Necessary Evil

If you are so well-versed and opinionated, why be an anonymous coward?

I do agree that there should be a consolidation of scripty bits but this should happen through natural growth/transformation processes, rather than shoved down the throat.

Perhaps Perl and various shells have succeeded past their primes. However they have powered much (%90++) of what is running in the world today. Having made a few forays into alternative shell worlds such as PowerShell, I'm not sure that anyone has come up with a better do-all.

Oncet the chips are embedded in our lobes to try to utilize our feeble pattern-recognition technologies, I bet that THEY will use scripting patterns very similar to what we do now.
