  1. Hi Chris, Matt and chatroom,
  3. I wanted to chime in my thoughts about your recent systemd discussion. As a system administrator I like systemd and it's innovate new features like D-Bus and Socket activation. However I have some concerns about it's long term viability, from what I see the main problem with systemd is it's large attack surface, which could lead to security problems in future.
  5. Also, because systemd will be adopted by all of Linux I fear it could become a major target for attackers. In short I think systemd is a good thing for Linux right now but in future it could become insecure and unmaintainable, and because more and more projects are starting to depend on systemd it could be a painful process to move away from systemd.
  7. Thanks for all the awesome shows,
