We found all four products to be capable network monitoring tools that performed well in our basic tasks such as checking for host availability and measuring bandwidth usage. Beyond the basics, there were quite a few differences in terms of features, granularity and configuration options.
The issue is the same as I have with the boot-times for my desktop PC, systemd makes assumptions that break Debian systems. In my case, systemd insists on every other service starting and running before attempting to start X, the thing I want up ASAP. In the case of the bug reported above, how the system time was handled over a reboot is changed with systemd. The old behaviour was that the clock was stored and retrieved so things survived reboots nicely. No more. Poettering et al have decided that time should be set by NTP or other means and systemd should not have anything to do with that although systemd is replacing the old init that did… BREAKAGE!!! Now I know why Linus swears so much! If a change to systemd breaks user’s systems, it’s a bug in systemd, not that the world needs to change to be the way Poettering wants. Putting folks who break things in charge of millions of systems is a tragedy of huge proportions. People should not have to rewrite init scripts to switch to systemd. Otherwise, systemd should get the Hell out of our way… or go away…

The short story is that I didn't do many tweaks to my GNOME 3.14 desktop and it's going well. Fedora 21 with GNOME 3.14 is running well for my X1 Carbon connected to this affordable 4K monitor. The only tweaks made were enabling icons on the GNOME Shell desktop (to get closer to my original workflow) and allowing thumbnails on images greater than 10MB (with the many original DSLR photos for Phoronix articles being 15MB+).
Two years after its initial announcement, Canonical will finally release its Ubuntu Phone in Europe during the coming week.
With the growing adoption of systemd, dissatisfaction with Linux has reached proportions not seen in recent years, to the extent that people have started talking of switching to FreeBSD.
