The Tragedy of Linux Systemd

Ok so I’ve written on this and spoken of this many times. In my opinion systemd changes things sure, but not necessarily for the better.

And Linux supplanted System V Unix which I’m also familiar with. In reality it’s an open source operating system like Windows or MAC-OS.


One item I harp on is simple concept. To get the IP address of a Linux server all you needed to do is ifconfig E.g Interface Configuration. On systemd it’s show ip addr

Which annoys the piss out of me. Plus I know one reason is because writing init scripts could be precarious if you didn’t understand. But alas I have to use it regardless.

It’d be nice if I could have posted this as a comment on youtube but of course it’s so controversial they turn comments off.
