It's like some "bizarro-world", un-controllable monster, all of and by it's own. IMHO, the Linux ecosystem could use a grand dose of what Linus has accomplished with development/maintenance of the kernel - i.e.; insightful, intelligent leadership and central decision-making, combined with a collaborative community in support.

I can only wonder if that will (can?) ever happen, beyond the kernel.

Just give systemd more time and it will eventually have everything in it hahaha

Disclaimer: a lot of systemd I actually like, despite my 'joke'. The old init system is OLD, rusty, inefficient and long past its use by date. The older we get the more nostalgic - but that's not how civilisation advances - the time comes when we should simply enjoy life but to a large extent move aside for the young - like it or not, it is they who inherit the Earth (and Linux...!).

Apparently some people have had problems with the first Debian 9 images, especially with installing them to their hard drives, so the devs have put some fresh ones (9.0.1) up on their site.

I've recently installed Sparky 4.6 (LXDE version) and it not only installs well but I was able to upgrade it from the RC version to the latest one. As luck would have it, the full version of 4.6 has just been released today.
