linux, systemd 

systemd probably is the best thing that has happened to the linux ecosystem in the last ~10 years.

Over the years I’ve been doing a lot of linux ops using different automation stacks and when something broke, usually the culprit was some old wrapped init-script that wasn’t ported to a systemd unit yet by the package maintainers. I hope that in the future they will put more effort into writing nice units, utilizing the security and isolation features that systemd offers.

I’m not saying it’s flawless, but for me it has relaxed ops tasks so much.
I love the unified interface. Not specifying tasks but a desired behavior/state. The next step from here is ditching the task based automation stacks and “untar over your /“ package managers. Container images were a great idea, but in reality they feel more like hot glue between one-shot scripts and bad build systems.

I‘ve been looking at NixOS for years, even used it as a daily driver back in 2017. It wasn‘t ready. A few months ago I gave it another chance and it totally hooked me. I’d say it‘s quiet usable for prod environments, though not very beginner-friendly, mostly because of bad documentation.
The future of linux computing is bright!

@vidister Yes! I fully agree. (Except for nixOS, haven't used it yet so no verdict there)

@vidister also came back to NixOS recently and really enjoying it as a desktop.

@vidister
I hear that guix does it better cause it uses a real programming language instead of a new one
