    Debian Developers Take To Voting Over Init System Diversity

    https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Debian-Init-Diversity-Vote

    Apparently Debian isn't exactly known for being fast when it comes to making changes or decisions...

    Funny that, the parallel is strong. That systemd dispute was as hotly divisive among Linux enthusasts as Brexit has been in this country.

    It's alright though - 2020 will be the year of Linux on the desktop :D


    If the developers spent as much time on improving the user experience as they do on the technical side, then Linux genuinely would have had more adoption by now imo

    The Gnome developer is funny because he wanted 10% of the market yet solves Gnome issues like desktop shortcuts by removing functions and deleting code. :)

    Unlikely, to many options on linux due to the vast amount of GUI's ect that you can have/use.

    Don't mean distro choices as all can either look the same or completely different irrespective of original distro.

    If you see what I'm getting at.

    Pretty surprised how quickly this happened considering the arguments systemd caused and all the people that left for Devuan.
