Systemd Rolls Out Its Own Mount Tool

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
Resistance futile! Linux will be assimilated!
----------------

Systemd-mount is the newest tool added to systemd by Lennart Poettering. 

The systemd-mount command is similar to the traditional mount command on Linux systems but with some differences. 

Lennart describes in the documentation for systemd-mount, "instead of executing the mount operation directly and immediately, systemd-mount schedules it through the service manager job queue, so that it may pull in further dependencies (such as parent mounts, or a file system checker to execute a priori), and may make use of the auto-mounting logic." 

Systemd-mount was added to systemd Git yesterday and will be part of the upcoming systemd 232 release. This is part of their greater work on transient mounts and automounts within the systemd scope.

[CHUGALUG] AT&T 1950

Via HN I thought this was an interesting historical tale due to the
previous discussions of Net Neutrality and Comcast/EPB.

Although I will say that it almost sounds more like Apple. However, Comcast
is one of those fighting freedom for set top boxes.

I think many/most classical liberals (i.e. free market econs) would
consider the attempts to block hush a phone to be a good place for the
government to require freedom (consumer in this case). You shouldn't be
able to tell me what to do with something I purchased as long as it is not
physically damaging to you... Hmmm.....
