The D in Systemd is for Directories: Poettering says his creation will phone /home in future


Re: That was a serious breath of fresh nerdiness

Bloody hell, another immediate vote-down with no reply to the comment. Voter - have you ever heard of the "Clipper Chip"? Read Schneier's "Practical Cryptography" or Singh's "Crypto", or Sterling's "Hacker Crackdown"? TPM actually turned out to be useful in locked-down environments, but not solely "locked OS" ones. Poettering does some good things, and some bad. I think Pulseaudio is the best compromise so far on sound in Linux. networkd and systemd not so much - solving problems that upstart and NM had already solved adequately.
