No, newsworthy is how to judge a post.
I’m not sure what you are trying to say here. systemd is an actual
software project, not a “post”.
You didn’t answer my question, so I will ask it again: Do you actually
have any experience with systemd? Or do you just go by what you hear?
I might go further: do you have any Linux experience at all?
YouTube is just as hit or miss ...
Funny how you try to play down YouTube in this way, when you are more
willing to give more credibility to Google search hits. Is it because
the latter tells you what you want to hear, the former does not?
...with most of the videos about
retraining people to use it, because it was just dumped in their laps
like a dead cat.
“Dumped” by whom? Open-source projects are created by project
communities, made up of people like you and me. If you want a distro
guaranteed stripped free of any package that even mentions systemd, feel
free to try Devuan.
The point isn't that it takes some digging around
produce these reports, it is that the most popular search engine
produces them immediately at a casual glance.
And as I pointed out, the most popular video site produces helpful
videos “immediately at a casual glance”. Yet you play up one while
discounting the other.
But who cares which distribution found the bug?
Well, you mentioned that specific one, rather than any other. So it
seems you cared.
The last turd dropped on us was found out on Ubuntu,
systemd doesn’t handle invalid usernames, so the process ends up
running as root. But it can only be started by root anyway. Why is this
a “turd” exactly?
