That's highly overdramatized, isn't it? Lets keep the facts straight
without jumping onto the choo choo bashing train and have an easy ride:
Yes there may be some users that, under certain circumstances, notice
problems... but its far not as "broken" as you try to state with that
statement. If you referrer to the session change update breakage thingie
from 2013 then sorry, but that's 3 years ago.
In fact I'm still using slim and never had any problems (same applies
for several friends i know).
Also maybe it does not handle systemd sessions, but so what? Lets nuke
tmux then because systemd kills it on logout and they don't want to
integrate systemd?
I don't say there may be no problems, but bashing like that statement is
simply not fair and also not very helpful.
