That's what worries me, that you sincerelly find it superior. I don't doubt
your good intentions.

I didn't mean the Arch devs, I meant Mr. Poettering & friends. I made clear
that I think the Arch devs have a difficult task, trying to keep the Arch
spirit while keeping in sync with upstream. This may prove impossible if
"upstream" is taken over by a couple of devs with a huge superavit of
self-esteem and a deficit of esteem for Unix. Again, having contempt for Unix
is perfectly legitimate, but they should assume it and start their own OS. One
can always hope that things will change for the better upstream.
