adduser is a 'front-end', if you wanna call it that way, of useradd, specifically meant to be used by noobs who can spend 5 min on reading the man page

One of the commands sucked, so someone made another one that sucks to replace it, but shell scripts already depend on the first one, so you have to keep both and they both suck.

God damn it, why is it that, presented with a standard
mailer that doesn't work for shite, instead of fixing it or
writing a new one that does, unix weenies propagate new
mailers that don't work for shite? Every few weeks I get
some new kind of bogus error message that plainly comes from
some mailer I've never seen before. (Like that great new
message that runs ``The following message was probably sent
either by you or to you, and it failed for some reason, not
necessarily here.'') There have got to be dozens of unix
mailers out there, scurrying about dark corners of the
internet and multiplying about like cockroaches.

It's like when I was in fourth grade and found this keen
rubbish dump out in the woods that was full of abandoned
machinery and thought how neat it would be to build a robot
out of it all and went to class the next day and proudly
boasted that I had actually done so. It's the sort of
teenage attitude where you suddenly realize you can actually
do stuff and get big ideas and start on glorious projects
without having any conception of followthrough and get bored
in the middle when it doesn't go so great and leave a big
mess.

Unix is all written by these teenagers (chronological or
emotional) who say ``oh wow, I bet I could write a mailer,
wouldn't that be great, I'll add all these winning features,
and it'll be so fun and cool'' and then they graduate or
discover sex or something and we're stuck running their
half-assed code.

LIES! OS X is NOT UNIX. It's sorta-kinda-BSD-abomination-whatever-Mach. It's arguably a lot less UNIX than Linux, which is specifically not UNIX. The only UNIXy things about it are the GNU parts, and GNU's Not UNIX.

Just for the record, I say this not as a Windows fanboi, oh no. I say this as an IRIX hardcore aficionado. Now, I will grant you that my DateTime struct is BSD. I admit that, and I apologize for it. But the rest is Bell System V Release 4, the One True Operating System; and I can ASSURE you, my friends, that OS X is emphatically NOT SVR4!

Proof? PROOF? YOU DEMAND PROOF?!

Bring up an OS X box from bare iron. Was fdisk involved? Did you need to bootstrap the thing from sash? Did your disks have slices, not partitions? Did getty enter in to your thinking? Was tar involved? Was it gtar, because THAT DOES NOT COUNT? DO YOU HAVE A FRAME BUFFER INSTALLED, YOU FILTHY HEATHEN? 19200/N/8/1?!?!?!

Nope, none of the above. Your machine goes "bonk" when you fail to enter your home zip code so that Apple can send you valuable offers of future services. If I tried to give a real UNIX box my home zip code so that I could receive valuable offers, it would probably detonate with the fury of a thousand Hiroshimas, AND the kernel would panic.

tl;dr, GTFO my ARPAnet.

muh POSIX

Fuck off. Nobody gives a fuck about that shitty standard. Linux user space doesn't have to conform to some old ass shitty standard nobody even reads. The sooner we get rid of that dead weight, the sooner Linux will start improving. The seeds have already been planted long ago, with each passing year it bears more fruit. I long for the day the "GNU/Linux" argument dies for good, along with the ridiculous POSIX definition of what an OS is.

lmao you're all Poettering fans

That guy's one of the few people who realize the irrelevance of aging Unix standards. Systemd uses Linux-specific features and system calls and is much better for it. That's the way it should be. People writing applications should use their platforms to the fullest extent, not worry whether it will run on some random BSD they never even use.

No, fuck you. Systemd sucked out of me any joy of using computers that I had left in me.

Yes, fuck cross-platform applications. We should all move to Windows 10.

How will oldfags ever manage without their shitty borderline unreadable service shellscripts? What will sysadmins do with their time now that they don't have to manually resolve dependencies anymore?

fuck cross-platform applications

Yes, fuck them. The rule is they're lowest common denominator software that doesn't do things right on any supported platform and just takes the intersection of their features instead of pushing the limits. People are much better served by targeting Linux directly. Or BSD for that matter. Just stop with this "portability is inherently good" nonsense.

Just pick your favorite platform and start actually using it instead of some doubly wrapped, highly abstracted version. If other people care that much, let them fork your software and maintain it.

lmao lets move to Windows 10

We're talking about Linux here. Windows doesn't even have a stable system call interface for user space. Stop being retarded on purpose.

I agree. I find that in many ways the amount of rampant degeneracy in the linux ecosystem is a great reflection of the amount of rampant degeneracy in society.

Luke Morgan
Luke Morgan

That would be logical but it's not. My guess is some random gem from Usenet since he's using code tags (cute syntax highlighting too)

Any reasonably complex program is not cross-platform, at least not without looking like a foreigner on some platforms.

Kayden Johnson

rampant degeneracy

Ditching the unix way is heresy now? You honestly believe it's beyond criticism or improvement? What's next, you going to call Linux users feminists? Soyboys? What meme will you spout next while downvoting the thread with your sage like a redditor? I guess it's too much for you religious zealots when someone dares to criticize the work of some old patriarchs. If it's so much better, stay in BSD then. Nobody is forcing you into Linux. Stay in your old POSIX world because we've got our own ideas of how things should be done and you people are holding us back.

The truth is people on Linux don't care anymore about simultaneously supporting Linux itself and a million BSDs through old standards like POSIX and its metric fuckton of limitations and implementation-defined behavior you can't count on. Linux is simpler, and the code to target it is easier to write and understand. People aren't and shouldn't be targeting POSIX in 2018. POSIX is dead. There's a reason Microsoft implemented the _Linux_ system call interface in Windows 10, and not some POSIX "standard" interface.

Linux is different. With Linux, we can always scrap everything and make our own custom user space if we want to. Nobody said it _has_ to be some POSIX relic; only GNU does that shit.

downvoting the thread with your sage
I saged because that post was irrelevant to the purpose of the thread. I you are too dumb to understand that that is what sage is for then you need to leave.

I'm not promoting PoSix. It has gotten many things wrong. But the rest of your post is just screeching. I can't imagine you have ever implemented anything to fix the issues you are raising. Take this for example
Linux is simpler, and the code to target it is easier to write and understand
Its a blatant lie. There is a reason why your shitty kernel is bigger then the entire OpenBSD source tree.

There hasn't been any real NT system since 5.2 (aka Server 2003). NT6.x (or "NT10" - mfw MS sales and marketing dictates their kernel version numbering these days) is all just various incarnations of the bollocks that was/is Vista. Why do you think ReactOS aims to reimplement NT5 rather than the Vista-like platform they shat out later?

Dominic Flores

everything I don't like is insane autism

Fuck you. I'm fucking tired of you retards going "hurr Linux is systemd now fuck Poettering we need to go back to shellscripts" and turning threads into an echo chamber where you reinforce each other's hipsterism as if past systems were anything but pure garbage compared to what we have now. Things are finally starting to work nicely in Linux land and you fucktards want to go back to the stone ages.

Why don't you build Linux from scratch if you care so much? Linux is so flexible, people can nuke glibc and build their own custom user space on top of it. The whole thing is free software; why don't you fucking modify it if it's so offensive to you? I'll tell you why. It's because you're lusers who do nothing and contribute nothing. Putting in the effort and making your vision come true is way too much work for you people. Making and maintaining a distribution is too demanding a task. That's why your only option is to hate on Poettering and shitpost everywhere about things you don't like in a desperate attempt to steer development back to your own approved direction. When that fails, you fuck off to the BSDs and pretend to be superior.
