If you’re not a Linux or UNIX nerd, you can safely pass this post by.
I was joking around about the UNIX nerd t-shirt “Go away or I will replace you with a very small shell script” with family, and it lead to my son mentioning Oracle.
At which point I realized: systemd is all Oracle’s fault. If Oracle hadn’t razed Sun Microsystems and Solaris into the ground, Linux nerds would have had Solaris around to keep mining ideas from. Without Solaris, their eyes settled on the monolithic goodness of Windows and they compromised the very principles Unix-like operating systems are based on.
