glibc (which is by far the shittiest library in a standard Linux stack)
Evidence? Oh, that's right, you don't have any, because this assertion is ludicrous. Yes, glibc is baroque and somewhat overcomplicated and is notably bad at a few use cases (such as those requiring static linking), but it is robust, reliable, flexible, remarkably complete, has an exceedingly stable API and ABI, and just works under an enormous variety of pressures and loads on a larger number of machines than anything else in the desktop Linux stack bar the kernel itself.

It is not by any measure 'by far the shittiest library in a standard Linux stack'. That goes far past hyperbole into outright untruth. You should apologise to the glibc developers.
