I know who first started using .local, it was a bad idea and when
'Avahi' for Linux was written, this could have been fixed, but it

I am not abusing anybody, I am just voicing my opinion and my opinion
is that anything written by 'you know who' has a lot of problems and
should be avoided like the plague.

Why ? I hear you saying, well for an instance, download Fedora 24,
remove network-manager and setup a fixed ip, just like you can on
Debian by altering the files, reboot. You will find
that /etc/resolv.conf has disappeared and when you try to recreate it,
you will find you cannot, this is because systemd now makes /etc
