I thought IBM was still stuck with Watson. Have they moved on?

The licenses alone are enough to ensure that the opposite happens.

The OP can make the same argument after replacing sudo with doas or su.

There are other applications that use suid (like newuidmap). And there are programs that use capabilities (like ping). I'm pretty sure that this logic will be used to justify assimilating those applications too. But I'm sure that the crowd will cheer them on as if they did something revolutionary.

That's rich, coming from a company that sued a child whose website domain name was mikerowesoft.com. (His name was Mike Rowe, and the site was about the software he made).

Systemd is too egotistic to even mention Linux. They will simply name it systemd-defenderd.

Don't believe me? See this!

The vast majority of Linux users consider systemd as a good thing because it apparently makes system administration easier. They also don't agree that systemd is monolithic, because it's actually designed modular.

But of course there are detractors. The only thing I like about systemd is its declarative service definition and parallel service startup. But if I wanted to run an OS with bloated and inscrutable software (even with the source code), my choice wouldn't be Linux or Systemd.

I also routinely switch parts of my OS. This is harder with systemd. Although it is modular, the modules are so tightly coupled that it will prevent the replacement of modular components with alternatives. Frankly, I think systemd is killing the innovation in system component development.

You can uninstall the sudo application and add sudo as an alias for run0 in your shell initialization script. That's better than them renaming run0 to sudo, because that will prevent people from running the real sudo if they want it.

I think assembly was easier back then. Some architectures still are. But many architectures like x86 got incredibly complicated.

The problem is that all of those interdependent parts and software that are dependent on it become entrenched. There is no freedom to replace individual parts with an alternative because something else will break. That's what I call 'Modular in theory, monolithic in practice'.
