Linux in 2020: 27.8 million lines of code in the kernel, 1.3 million in systemd


"Everybody who has ever worked at that level in the operating system has agreed that systemd is the proper solution"

I can do it too :

Everybody who I speaking to agreed that's you are...

Everybody who has ever worked with systemd known how it suck, that gnome3 and all stuff you are making belong to the trash. But anybody is wheeling to do your craps when redhat and ms push it with $...

10 years from now Microsoft will own all this stuff.

EU wouldn't! Uncle Sam brandishes 'up to 100%' tariffs over France's Digital Services Tax


Retour de bâton

I would have in other circumstances, take a stand against this, but the French president sold himself to China last month for more than 13 billions, without giving a damn about the situation in Hong Kong.


"stepping up the fight for the universality of civil and political rights." <--- Yeah right...

"No - US companies should pay tax in the country where profits are earned, simple as that!"

Agree nothing to add. As much it is wrong , France got what it deserve however.

Tor pedos torpedoed again, this time Feds torpedo four Tor pedos – and keep how they unmasked dark-web scumbags under wraps


Another theory

I wouldn't be surprise to learn he was related with them and gave them out

Or tor is compromised by the reptilian humanoids...

No Telegram today, protestors: Chinese boxes DDoS chat app amid Hong Kong protest


I really hope they will fight for it before foreign country decide to end the chinese expansionism, this is sadly the only issue, no talk, justice, compromise, fairness possible with this government, violating treaty, international law, ingerence, censorship, propaganda, murder... domination by any means at any cost.

Hongkongers knew it was only a matter of time, as it is for the rest "free world".

Re: Could this work to avoid legal action ?

So which jurisdiction am I subject ?

If I only transit, they can do the same ?

Even though this story is true, it sound unrealistic...


Could this work to avoid legal action ?

Linus Torvalds pulls pin, tosses in grenade: x86 won, forget about Arm in server CPUs, says Linux kernel supremo


Re: "Torvalds abandoned his commitment to civil discourse.."

Personal opinion : Never been choc or never found him particularly insulting by his way of talking.

"agreeing with everyone and avoiding profanity is the only thing that will satisfy some people."

This is sadly the behavior to have today, not long ago, I have the misfortune to trigger a reaction over proportionate for placing 1 "bullshit" in a of 2 hours argument with some dev on their IRC channel (widely used distro). The reaction wasn't natural, too pathetic for be true.

But it is useful to get rid of disturbing question...

Oh Snapd! Gimme-root-now security bug lets miscreants sock it to your Ubuntu boxes


Re: Who the hell uses Linux

"Google had to replace the whole user space with a copy of Java to make it usable"

Omg... make it usable by replacing the whole with Java ? Java is buggy as hell, it's slow and heavy, it's a language that should not even exist ! I have hard masked it to make sure never a single piece of java will get into my system

It's since Google, Oracle and other corporation mass pull their code on Linux the thing go wrong ! Take a look of debian, ubuntu, fedora with their gnome-shell, systemd, dbus (the worth of all), it's full of bugs, unmaintainable, exacly like windows and other commercial os based

You like Google ? The company that rape your privacy in exchange of a free closed source browser, with the only goal to better target their ads, owned by this guy https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2009/12/google-ceo-eric-schmidt-dismisses-privacy, are just a Google worker or a moron ?


Re: Am I Sam Beckett?

Having flash on Debian nowadays would be the least of my worried in matter of security...


The D in SystemD stands for Danger, Will Robinson! Defanged exploit code for security holes now out in the wild


Systemd is fine...

... for a system not requiring security, stability or any serious control. Like gamer pc with steam / nvidia proprietary / graphics / media video, skype...

Now using it on a environment where security is critical, it is inconsistent. Working with a minimal distro, openrc, hardened kernel, strict rules MAC, permission... doesn't even guarantee a security breach, what more with systemd.

Heads up: Debian's package manager is APT for root-level malware injection... Fix out now to thwart MITM hijacks


Same as portage ?

It remind me https://security.gentoo.org/glsa/201507-16

The D in Systemd stands for 'Dammmmit!' A nasty DHCPv6 packet can pwn a vulnerable Linux box


I still don't understand on what systemd, gnome3, Networkd or all the stuff shiped with most of the distribution Linux available has in some point, improved efficiency, security, and management of the system... I experienced the exact reverse of this : system unstable, bug, loss of performance and control.

Finally ended with Gentoo which is finally the easiest distribution to manage and control amd offer something the other don't : Freedom.

Et tu, Gentoo? Horrible gits meddle with Linux distro's GitHub code


Re: Where's Hardened Gentoo when needed?

musl hardened profile, update several time a week


- What is going on there?

Don't known what to reply... wiki.gentoo, forums.gentoo will help you.
