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?
As an immigrat … I come from another culture. And I’m aware of the fact that people elsewhere in the world think differnetly from us. I can, sort of, see us, us Americans, with their eyes. And not all that I see is attractive. I see an insular people who are insensitive to foreign sensibilites, who are lazy, obese, complacent, and increasingly perplexed as to why we are losing our place in the world to people who are more dynamic than us and more disciplined.— (Kenyan-American Biograpeher) Edmund Morris on CBS’ Face The Nation
