I noticed where someone comented about a version, or OS, "It is not mainstrean, "

do have a tendancy to try to convience others that we all have to follow the "mainstrean" crowd, and use what they do,......
I don't remember which thread, and did not want to argue with the person,..after
all said and done, I know my system is not "mainstream", but for me it is perfect and works quite well, no crashes, etc,... Years ago I did try the OS people consider "mainstream", it did not work , so I went my own route,...if that makes me a terrorist,
or what ever, so be it.


As well as that "Linux" does sound very techy and exclusive, possibly prohibitive. I'm sure the media could easily paint it in a very negative light if they chose to.

no surprise here. The powers that be want everyone to use Microsoft, Apple and Android products. BSD and Linux have always been for those who "know" and even for governments etc... "They" don't like us using the same things that they use.

and with the unmentionable newer OS within an OS Linux is becoming more like those big three anyway.

Don't see much happening with this since governments use and depend on Linux.

Android is the big player on the mobile market and the terrorists not using iOS probably are using it already.
Being based on Linux, this adds no new aspect to this discussion.

Treading on thin ice here....lets see...Its possible not to use it with Debian, almost impossible to remove on others, Slackware and BSD's don't use it. That bright light you see is a flashlight pointing towards it ~~~~~> :idea:

Just to clarify - are we talking about systemd? And are we not allowed to talk about systemd?!

"Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent!"

Furthermore, I hope the reasons we cannot talk about systemd [if that is correct] is because it would be off topic, rather than 'no one shall discuss systemd!'

Not trying to create a segue, just making sure.

EDIT: it's not systemd, I have no idea what it is. Though I did fine this topic a highly entertaining read viewtopic.php?f=20&t=129881
