I just wanted to make a pointer to this /r/archlinux thread about dropping ConsoleKit support for a systemd-specific replacement, because I think the discussion (that I waded in to) is revealing about how the current “Linux is increasingly un-UNIX-like, and that makes me unhappy” situation came to be. For the record, tomegun is Tom Gunderson, Arch’s initiscripts maintainer – isn’t the internet cool?
When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movements become headlong – faster and faster and faster. They put aside all thoughts of obstacles and forget the precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it’s to late.— Frank Herbert
