Systemd has 1.3 million lines of code.

Systemd has 1.3 million lines of code.

It has grown into a monster that takes over your entire system and tries to manage everything itself, whereas with a simple script-based init system like runit, sysvinit or Open RC, you know exactly what the code is doing, what services are being started, you can manage and set up said services yourself, alter the order on which they start up, etc. The code is simple to understand, less bloated, and gives the user more control. Of course the downside is that you need to set up all the services yourself, since the init won't do it for you the way Systemd does, so you need to know what services you need and how to set them up (a cron daemon for example), but overall it's much better to have control over your OS.

Check for example the .xz supply chain attack... it only affected Systemd distros, because only systemd pulled in the compromised liblzma repositories that created the backdoor which affected ssh.
So thanks to the complexity and bloat of systemd, you had a malicious edit on one library (liblzma) affecting another program (ssh) even though there was no direct connnection between the two.
Systemd's desire to manage everything was the connection between these two systems.

Systemd is a threat to open source.
Just look at this shit.
When was the last time its 1.3 million lines of code were audited?

      That distinction will matter little when the next supply chain attack comes.

    Why does everyone in here pretend that "install gentoo" is a meme? If you aren't running Gentoo on OpenRC you should be permabanned from this entire site if you ever post on IQfy that you use anything else.

            Exactly. It looks like fricking dogshit and it's barely usable. There's no way you're using that as a daily driver. Probably just some troony running Gentoo in a virtual machine so he can pretend to be a cool guy.

            can you explain in more detail what's unusable about system that just works without troony bloat that requires you to do something moronic?
            I mean to be fair you saw I had to use maim manually to take a png screenshot... Because IQfy is shit and doesn't support webp and I'm not going to add a keybind just for that.

        That's a lie, my decade old chinkpad never takes longer than 10 mins for most updates (except for kernel, firefox, and libreoffice). And Gentoo has binary support now so you don't have to compile anything.

    systemd currently has 2119 contributors. it means 2119 freetards are auditing the code or have audited it at some point. probably more read the code but didn't have anything to contribute. take your meds.
