One more time with feeling, listen to yours truly and Linus Torvalds, Microsoft is no longer Linux's enemy. The enemy of AWS and Google? You bet. But, Linux no.

I think I'll continue to try to avoid MS as best I can. They've proven countless times they cannot be trusted.

I think I'll stick with Linux Mint, if it's all the same to you.

My experience with Microsoft product quality has not been...encouraging.

Still couldn't refuse the passive-biatchy final sentence just because, could you Stevie?

So, if you want a secure, stable Linux for your edge computing or container needs, I suggest -- in all seriousness -- you give CBL-Mariner a try. While I continue to have my doubts about Windows as a serious operating system, Microsoft did a fine job of creating a solid Linux. Who would have guessed!

You bastard, I will not be able to sleep tonight as my brain tries and fails to process the mindf*ck that MSSystemD would be.

Linux_yes has been suspiciously absent in these threads. And this is the second in two days.

Either he's died or that guy is Linux_yes.

Quick, someone do a ctrl-f in the article for 'Librem'

No, no, that was the rejected line.

The approved line was "I haven't farked like that since grade school."

I haven't been a programmer in ages so this complaint may be waaay out-of-date, but every unix-based system I ever tried all had a slight lag between hitting a key and seeing the output on the screen. No matter what nice level I tried. No commercial  OS aimed at paying users would have a market with that. Toward the end of my career, in my office I had 3 or 4 scavenged PCs each running a variety of unix and my official dedicated work PC. I quit futzing around with unix when nothing I did mattered to the interface response time.

Being Microsoft, I'd expect it to be called something like "IntelliActiveDirectSystemdX"

/Or does SystemD come with systemd-bluescreend?

You can set your baud rate to something faster than 300 baud if you buy a new modem.

The only lag problems I have are due to speed of light issues between continents.
