Tronsmart has launched an $80-and-up “Orion R28? mini-PC that runs Android 4.4 on a quad-core, Cortex-A17 Rockchip RK3188 SoC clocked at 1.8GHz. Like Ugoos, Tronsmart has tapped Rockchip system-on-chips such as the quad-core, Cortex-A9 RK3188, which fuels its Android-ready Tronsmart T428 stick computer. Tronsmart’s latest mini-PC — the Orion R28 — advances to Rockchip’s quad-core RK3288 SoC, which uses the Cortex-A17 architecture, a faster, smaller, and more power efficient heir to the Cortex-A9. The SoC has already appeared in the Rikomagic MK902II and the Ugoos UT3 mini-PCs.

systemd is a replacement for the sysvinit daemon used in GNU/Linux and Unix systems, originally authored by Lennart Poettering of Red Hat. It represents a monumental increase in complexity, an abhorrent and violent slap in the face to the Unix philosophy, and its inherent domineering and viral nature turns it into something akin to a "second kernel" that is spreading all across the Linux ecosystem. This site aims to serve as a rundown and a wake-up call to take a stand against the widespread proliferation of systemd, to detail why it is harmful, and to persuade users to reject its use.
