Re: Oracle Might Save Linux In The End

You're presuming that Oracle won't jkust pick up the RHEL sources and do exactly the same - which is kinda what they've been doing so far...

That depends on how you define "improvement"; grub2 is far more extensible in the long term, so you won't be painted into a corner. That said, it is *supremely* user-unfriendly, and I hate it with a passion.

No. systemd can give you much, much faster boot times. It is actually rather good.
Where systemd falls down IMHO is that it would be a trivial matter to wrap the systemctl start/stop in a SysV-like script, which would keep everyone happy, but no-one wants to do that :-(

Yep. With you on that one.

For the most part, I don't.
> Oracle Linux just might save Linux by giving people what they want
It won't. Oracle is just a RHEL rebuilder, just like I am. Oracle is bringing nothing at all to the party.
