Disappointing press reactions...

Friday, 13th... Systemd v38 went out recently and it includes a journald test release. That's great and congrats to the systemd team to that release. What me saddens is the that the press still conveys only Lennart's position on how bad syslog is. The counter arguments (http://blog.gerhards.net/2011/11/serious-syslog-problems.html) are mentioned nowhere. Lesson learned? All it takes is some interesting-sounding claims and everyone believes them. Does anybody still wonder why I think journald will become standard [and would do so even if it were totally evil]? ;-)

But don't get me wrong: while I think the journald proposal and the way it is getting pushed has some flaws, I also see good in it. My initial reaction still stands: http://blog.gerhards.net/2011/11/journald-and-rsyslog.html Unfortunately, the world, and us, the masses, seems not to be prepared for weighted arguments... On to the weekend, have a great one :-)
