No need, I can clearly see that the misinterpretation was mine.

Some people don't like systemd due to the attitude of the main developer and some of the arrogant comments and assumptions he has made about other software projects. This is a guy who considers *BSD as irrelevant and "legacy". And that's before you even start to consider the software/project itself.

After AT&T, FreeBSD is the next in line to the title of 'Grandaddy of unix' & is certainly not irrelevent, as most of the internet runs on it, far more than use Linux, or Microsoft.

Installed GNU guix this week on a spare partition. I'm a little lost, though I can install packages. Very different from what I've gotten used to with OpenBSD. I'm just going to play with it off and on unless they move over to make a GNU Hurd version (uh, and then I'll play with that off and on?). Some of the weirdness here is just Linux I think. Like why is a dmesg 1000 lines long? What are all these processes?

Goodguy Greg is an Internet meme. There's pictures of that person, telling the nice things he does. His opposite is S**mbag Steve who does lots of mean things

I've been a fan of Debian (due to its optional lightweight) and Fedora (because of yum history) before I made the step into the BSD world. After having played with both FreeBSD (as well as PC-BSD) and OpenBSD for a while now, I guess if I had to decide for a Linux some time in the future, I'd probably choose Slackware as it's probably the "BSD'est" of the Linuxes without having the Gentoo compiler hell.
