I had the pleasure to participate in one episode of the CRE Podcast (German). Enjoy.

systemd leitet die neue Generation der Linux Systemarchitektur ein Der einst von Linus Torvalds geschaffene Betriebssystemkernel Linux ist eine freie Reimplementierung der UNIX Betriebssystemfamilie und hat sich in den letzten 20 Jahren sehr eigenständig entwickelt. Der Rest des Systems, das Userland, hat sich aber noch sehr stark an der klassischen Struktur von UNIX orientiert. Mit der Initiative systemd hat sich dies geändert und es entsteht ei...

So there's this blog post circling around, claiming full native systemd suport in MySQL. It's quite a stretch and not really true.

It boils down to MySQL shipping mysqld.service unit. It invokes database as Type=forking and does not even scratch systemd support.

At the minimum, MySQL should implement Type=notify behaviour. It would give perfect, 100% correct readiness notification. It would open a door to utilizing the watchdog, which is important for people caring about reliability. It would make sysadmins happier by providing extended status messages.

Above the minimum level would be to support for socket-activation. This is often asked by various people. It would bring fully implicit dependencies, make the database always available and allow for restarts without dropping any client connections.

The team behind the blogpost writes: ”It would be great if systemd provides some sort of generic readiness protocol without linking to their library”. Uhm, hello?  Systemd's protocol is extremally simple: get a socket location from an environment variable, open it and write a text string. You can't go more simple and generic than that! The protocol is fully described in ”man sd_notify”.

There's no need to link to systemd libraries if you don't want to. The protocol can be implemented in few lines of code in any given language. libsystemd is a great example how to do it – few concise lines of basic C. 
Even if you don't like LGPL-2.1+ license, you can grab liberally, MIT-licensed earlier version from systemd git.

To sum up, what's in MysSQL 5.7.6 is not a native systemd support.

Doomsday is coming …
 
I can't believe they figured this out.  This is a big step towards what all of the AI doomsdayer's are warning us about: 
Code has been automatically "transplanted" from one piece of software to another for the first time

#Windows10 is a free upgrade, right? Well, surely you know by now that there's no such thing as a free lunch. We're only 48 hours on from the launch of Windows 10 and already the complaining and criticism is underway. One thing that has been brought under the spotlight is privacy under the latest version of Microsoft's operating system.
Some people have been surprised to learn that Microsoft is utilizing the internet connections of Windows 10 users to deliver Windows Updates to others. But this is far from being the end of it. Cortana also gives cause for concern, and then there is the issue of Microsoft Edge, and ads in apps. Is this a price you're willing to pay?
