Where is Unix spirit ?
Where is Unix spirit ? Since some years, i had the feeling that the Unix spirit was more and more forgotten. Today I've read an interesting article about a new (mis)feature in Fedora : packages installation by unprivileged users . I must admit that I've been shocked when I read this.
Another shock : the reaction of Richard Hugues ( PackageKit maintainer ) which state I don't particularly care how UNIX has always worked ...
Another disturbing fact was the fact that PolicyKit was not respecting the FHS concerning the location of its configuration files.
