Linux greybeards release beta of systemd-free Debian fork


SystemD was imposed on the linux community by redhat and the same "engineer" who gave us the joy of pulse audio. I am a slackware user and I remember using pulse audio in the early days just after it was renamed from polyp audio and it was a mess - the response to my mailing list request for support was "thats a problem with alsa drivers take it up with them". We recently got pulse audio (7 years later) and it seems reasonably stable, I use centos at work and I have yet to see anything about systemD which is an improvement from my point of view as an administrator - an opaque log, "extras" needed for common pieces of software all to fix something which is not broken.

You can keep your systemD tyvm
