Systemd Will Be Adopted Starting With Linux Mint 18 And LMDE 3

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Debian and Ubuntu have decided both to adopt systemd as the default service manager, as a replacement for the good old sysVinit (Upstart).

Not long ago, the Linux Mint team has decided to change their release policy and adopt only the LTS versions of Ubuntu, the systems released between to LTSs being only point releases that update the main components. Also, they have moved Linux Mint Debian Edition’s (LMDE) code base from Debian Testing to Debian Stable.

Systemd Will Be Adopted Starting With Linux Mint 18 And LMDE 3

According to Linux Mint’s Clement Lefebvre, systemd will be adopted starting with Linux Mint 18, which will be based on Ubuntu 16.04 (the first Ubuntu system to use systemd), while Linux Mint Debian Edition 2 Betsy will be still using sysVinit, the switch to systemd being scheduled for LMDE 3.

    This means that Ubuntu, Fedora and now Linux Mint are becoming
    now essentially fragile windows clones. The inclusion of systemd
    is not necessary for linux distos but but the corporate types
    at Red Hat just LOVE this. You the user now lose control over
    your system…does this sound like FOSS to you?
