Debate Over Systemd Exposes the Two Factions Tugging At Modern-day Linux

Linux Slashdot - Tue, 28/10/2014 - 04:24
walterbyrd (182728) sends this article about systemd from Paul Venezia, who writes: In discussions around the Web in the past few months, I've seen an overwhelming level of support of systemd from Linux users who run Linux on their laptops and maybe a VPS or home server.
