Interesting. I feel that they ignore the static linking biggest disadvantage, that when you have a library update you need to update all apps individually to be able to use that update, but still an interesting approach.
http://www.infoworld.com/article/3048737/open-source-tools/stali-distribution-smashes-assumptions-about-linux.html has more on this distribution.
 
stali Linux (no systemd, no bloat, love it!)
About. stali is a brand new static linux distribution based on the original pre-2010 plans of the suckless.org project, but with a couple of revised goals: stali goals. Follow the suckless philosophy; Target x86_64 and arm (RPi) support; Use custom stali.mk Makefile's for the base system (except ...

Not only have all the Microsoft Relationship Managers come out in force trying to confuse the issue, now we have the RedHat employee (and SJW - http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/32778.html) that "whitewashed" secure boot (http://www.zdnet.com/article/torvalds-strongly-objects-to-windows-8-secure-boot-keys-in-the-linux-kernel/) also coming out on Microsoft's side.
For me, this only adds more circumstantial evidence raising the probability that Microsoft has indeed imposed this on Lenovo and would do the same on other OEM.
There's a story going round that Lenovo have signed an agreement with Microsoft that prevents installing free operating systems. This is sensationalist, untrue and distracts from a genuine problem. The background is straightforward. Intel platforms allow the storage to be configured in two ...

It's been a while since the proprietary lock-in people have really put their strategies and marketing into practice. It's only natural that the naive will fall to it. We just have to hope that truth and openness continues to prevail, at least in this little corner of the world. ;)

And here they are at their typical tactics again...
 
Warning: Microsoft Signature PC program now requires that you can't run Linux. Lenovo's recent Ultrabooks among affected systems. You can use System76, Dell and other vendors here => http://www.cyberciti.biz/hardware/laptop-computers-with-linux-installed-or-preloaded/ They will take your money happily to pre install Linux. Enough of Microsoft loves Linux crap.

THE ECJ once again proves that stupidity has no limits

WTF - never mind the hard dependency on systemd, it was to be expected sooner or later. But a UPnP and a VNC server in a desktop environment?

And this is why you will see Israeli appeals to terror but won't see any appeals to boycott Israel in Facebook.
Following Facebook’s censorship controversy over a world famous photograph of the Vietnam War, Facebook has agreed to “work together” with Israel’s government to censor content Israeli officials deem to be improper. Facebook officially announced the “cooperative” arrangement after a meeting took place between Israeli government ministers and top Facebook officials on September 11th. The Israeli […]

There is no free press. That is why I watch euronews, bbc news, cnn, rt, and al jazeera and then draw my own conclusions.

"Why won't they think of the children? We need to protect those retards novices from attempting to remove systemd!"
 
The problem with all this fanaticism around software: some novice user is gonna read somewhere that systemd (s/systemd/anything really/g) is evil and really bad and uninstall it and bork their system. I still see the occasional case of people uninstalling PulseAudio.
