  • Systemd has taken it's design elements from emacs.  Expect it to read your email and Usenet soon.
  • Windows is where systemd came from.  Microsoft even hired Lennart Pottering and gave him a nice cushy job out of their deep gratitude.
  • Didn't take long for the systemd creator to infect Windows, he just started working there in July. If you know that guy and he offers you to help with home renovations, don't let him.

    /have no real opinion on systemd, came back to Linux last year and haven't really started looking under the hood yet.
  • The author seems really excited about the prospect.  It's kind of like looking forward to getting herpes.

    Wow someone actually took the time to make that.

    Systemd is a boot manager.  And a network manager.  And a logging service.  And anything else it can manage to consume as it grows into a monolithic entity that really should have stuck to being a boot manager.  It's like a Windowsification of Linux.  Quite too horrid to behold in it's entirety, you can only look at pieces and preserve your sanity.

    It is a gross violation of the KISS principle and the "do one thing and do it well" philosophy of OSS.

    I prefer John Carpenter's version of systemd.
  • I'm by no means a hardcore Linux nerd, but I'm pretty sure that if you actually want this, you might as well just actually use Linux as your primary os.
  • Because stacking legacy bloat on top of more legacy bloat always works out fine.

    The resident hardcore Linux nerd hasn't shown up yest but yes if you are using WSL that much then you might as well ditch Windows.

    Mind you, any moment now systemd will subsume the event logging service on Windows and then soon we will be faced with "systemctl start mswindows"
  • gas giant: Because stacking legacy bloat on top of more legacy bloat always works out fine.


    systemd isn't legacy bloat.  It's new bloat to replace perfectly fine, if somewhat cryptic and slow legacy service daemons.  The sort of thing where businesses tear out their legacy mainframe terminal systems because terminal interfaces are not "user friendly" and the system is written in COBOL or something and replace it all with web-based Windows systems and the end result is twice as slow, has 5x the downtime, and nobody can figure out how to use it or it takes twice as long to do the common tasks as before.
  • Marcus Aurelius: Windows is where systemd came from.  Microsoft even hired Lennart Pottering and gave him a nice cushy job out of their deep gratitude.


    And yet pulseaudio is still broken.

    Perhaps they should stop letting him do new things until he gets the prior things working properly.
  • null: It's new bloat to replace perfectly fine, if somewhat cryptic and slow legacy service daemons.


    Sort of and also the reason I still like BSD for anything other than a simple desktop os.

    That's sudo systemctl enable me Windows to you!

  • SystemD coming to Windows is just so amusing. What edge case are you hoping to cover? "I am a Linux Admin who also supports Windows systems and would like to control my Windows machines via SystemD"????

    As a Linux Engineer who supports Windows I would much rather use Linux to do what my Windows machines do, but I wouldn't want to use WSL. I use WSL on my desktop because I have to use Windows as a desktop (security policy.... blah blah blah). WSL at least makes it easier to do my job on Windows.

    If only there was an article somewhere explaining the reasoning, and somebody to post it to Fark.

    Nobody's explained why Linux needs systemd, so I  understand why nobody can explain why windows needs it.
