Man, wait until these people hear about the filesystem and kernel.

The very existence of a defined kernel is an insult to the Linux philosophy

[-] psud 14 points 1 month ago

The Linux kernel (the part that gives Linux the name) is antithetical to Linux philosophy? I could understand it being contrary to GNU philosophy

Does it ? I thought it was never completed !

On the other hand, if you want a microkernel that does exist, there’s Mach. But I don’t think you can replace Linux with it 😆

It's been two years away for the last 30 years.

Yeah, there's a Debian implementation of GNU/hurd. Debian recommend you run it in a VM

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

I won't bother. Sounds like hurd work.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Hurd is supposed to work with GNU mach afaik

In some ways I think the filesystem is philosophically the exact opposite of systemd

I can boot my system with an ext4 root, with a btrfs /home...or vice versa. Or add some ZFS, or whatever. The filesystem is (with the exception of some special backup schemes) largely independent of the rest of the system, despite being of core importance.

On the other hand, I can't change my init system (i.e., systemd) without serious, serious work.
