Solving problems that do not exist anymore

The people who are targeted by this have mostly moved on to Tablets and Smartphones using Android or IOS. The remaining people understand that you must mount and unmount drives or use cloud or network services. And even if they don't, just mounting it sync will get rid of file corruption for the rest.

Now this wouldn't be a problem if he'd simply write his own version of mount which would just replace any mount you'd want. The problem is that there are dependencies. You will probably no longer be able to use systemd without that new mount, and you will probably not be able to use that new mount without systemd. I mean that whole systemd thing wouldn't be a problem if Poetterling would have just started his own operating system and leave the rest of the Linux community.
