I do software development for a living and as a hobby (examples). My favorite language (and ecosystem) is Python, and my OS of choice is Debian.

comment What are the pros/cons of Upstart and systemd?
Thanks for summarizing the info. Do you mind asking Lennart the rationale of what led you to think Personally this sounds like the most pointless thing...? It appears he answers all questions on that blog post (which is still getting comments many months later!).

@xeno BTW I never hesitate to change Accepted answer whenever a nicer one pitches. Also, luckily Gilles doesn't care whether there already is an accepted answer or not.

How is this better than @John's answer? Is it a placeholder? A promo of H Online?

comment Any options to replace GNU coreutils on Linux?
@xeno Debian is actually now using EGLIBC, which sort of a fork of GLibC. But it follows GLibC closely, so the diff ain't that big.

comment Any options to replace GNU coreutils on Linux?
@xeno "More robust"? Also keep in mind that your system (including kernel) is largely built with GCC and depends on GLibC :)
