I would like to respectfully write a counter opinion on moderation :-). I.e. that this post did deserve moderator attention and hence flagging. Although perhaps we need to use the "other" flag, to include specific reasoning. For such a case where the guidelines are being abraded, as opposed to being smashed through.
I don't think it is good to include dog-whistle attacks on individuals ("the best thing since pulseaudio"), which would be a huge de-rail if one tried to discuss it on the post.
I find "wunderkinder" suspicious. It's not the more common loan-word "wunderkind" (wonder-child). It's not the German orthography either. It would actually be the plural form, which makes the sentence ungrammatical. In the context above, I give it -0.5 for looking like a second veiled personal reference.
I am happy to score on points and make an ad-hoc judgement, and I think this post crosses the line for being personal and inflammatory. And the fact that that a topic is known to attract inflammatory personal attacks should make us more careful about it, not less. I do not think we should propagate this.
In the same context, I'm not keen on saying that RHEL 7 is "tainted" because it uses
systemd. You can convey similar sentiments without needing to label one side of an argument by analogy to rotten food. E.g. "(We have other reasons to avoid
systemd as well)", or "I think this option will still work if you ever manage to escape
Some level of technical ranting is inevitable, and I accept that.
For this question, criticizing RHEL as a (commercial) product was relatively on-topic. RedHat are the biggest OSS company; they can probably survive a little snark. I don't agree that the adoption of
systemd is just about who employs the developers. But arguably a factor - fine.
The technical history implied by the answer is a bit odd. RHEL 6 already used biosdevname, this would equally rename
eth0. I think the difference is that biosdevname was designed only for server systems with BIOS support, whereas systemd uses so-called "predictable" device names for all PCI network devices. (I understand PCI device order may vary between boots if your motherboard plays silly beggars though). But I would only score this a small fraction. The answer is otherwise professional enough I would interpret this as genuine annoyance, as opposed to someone bringing in emotional baggage from unrelated issues.
