I'll admit that I do need to read more. But it seems this discussion goes back a few months and there's no clear starting point on what began this. I don't always have time to keep tabs on every diverging trend in the Linux world, so I missed this back when it started. Any references you can point me to?

I'm not a hater of systemd or udev. I just don't use systemd, because basic init and the OpenRC setup work for my installs. Maybe not everyone's, so systemd (and others) fill those gaps. With udev, I don't pay a lot of attention to it -- it JustWorks(TM). No need to really fiddle with something that isn't broken. -- Joshua Kinard Gentoo/MIPS kumba@g.o 4096R/D25D95E3 2011-03-28 "The past tempts us, the present confuses us, the future frightens us.
