A lot of systemd changes that riled people were mostly matters of taste, but some of the newish proposed features are really getting out of hand.

Essentially, the new (default) setting for systemd-logind is that it just throws away all running applications on logout. The only way to circumvent this is either

a.) Have the user change a setting.
b.) Have all programs use systemd-specific code to not get killed on logout.

Essentially, "we're standard, you have to support the shit we do". That's just not a point of view you can just assume in a Linux environment.

This problem was already an issue for people doing things like log analysis having to filter out about 30 or so extra log lines per cron job because systemd does verbose session logging without a reliable way of disabling just the chatter. ("Starting Session [0-9]+ of user root"...)

And now: this.

Fuckers do not understand resolvers, steal away resolving from about half the system, and tell everyone else to upgrade or FOAD.

I understood some of the design decisions going into some aspects of systemd, but this is utter bullshit and needs cleansing with fire, without remorse.

Who ever thought we'd be discussing the privacy implications of using a vacuum?

What a weird world we live in.

Q You were joking about solar, right?

THE PRESIDENT: No, not joking, no. There is a chance that we can do a solar wall. We have major companies looking at that. Look, there’s no better place for solar than the Mexico border — the southern border. And there is a very good chance we can do a solar wall, which would actually look good. But there is a very good chance we could do a solar wall.

One of the things with the wall is you need transparency. You have to be able to see through it. In other words, if you can’t see through that wall — so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what’s on the other side of the wall.

And I’ll give you an example. As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don’t see them — they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It’s over. As crazy as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs.
