Thank you for the pointer. Enjoyed the talk.

Even though I'm still not a fan of systemd, I can at least realize now
that it wasn't completely unjustified to come up with that system layer.

Yes. A video of a session at a professional conference.

Clearly, you've never been to a professional conference.

There are language nuances expressed by the speaker that are not present
in the written word. A lot of times, people with a paper or other thesis
will present it at a conference as a session to foster discussion of the
ideas therein.

I would argue that your lack of experience with professional conference
sessions is a sign of cultural illiteracy.

Thank you!

There were a lot of things I didn't realize why systemd was needed and
what for. Very enlightening.

I have been the actual presenter, or speaker, at several
national professional conferences.

Language "nuances" are totally irrelevant for any kind of technical
presentation.

Unless, perhaps, one is making a presentation for an illiterate
audience of pre-school children or demented housewives.

Yes, clearly.

Actually, funny you should mention that -- just had a capsulectomy to
remove scar tissue from behind a lens implant. Zap-zap, done in 5
minutes.

Okay. Name three.

Wrong.

For example, while the speaker in that video is discussing criticisms of
systemd, he brought one up: "Systemd is buggy!"

And he said, "it's software".

The way he said that is just as important as the words he used -- an
element of language that you might have trouble comprehending if (say)
you are on the autism spectrum. If so, you have my regards, and I hope
you re-evaluate your position from the standpoint of those who have
better communication skills.

Oh, is that the kind of presentations you've done at "several national
professional conferences"? That would explain a lot.
