Or maybe not. http://ewontfix.com/14/ I understood and agreed with, toned
down from your sentiment, but philsophically the same. I don't think the same
about systemd so much any more after reading a few days ago this:

Wow... let's see...


/etc/inittab replaced by
config files with dozens to hundreds of indecipherable, undocumented lines for
even the simplest initializations

some weird mechanism which intercepts


$ /etc/init.d/[someservicename] restart
and somehow maps it to some random-looking "systemd" command....

so the /etc/init.d structure is still there, but nothing there is actually
meaningful....
which then just confuses the fuck out of everything


process 1, init, .. an extremely short program, so short that it NEVER
needs to be updated (and also takes exteremely few CPU cycles), is replaced
by systemd, some big huge executable, which is a CPU hog, and sometimes needs
to be replaced.... thereby causing an IMMEDIATE NEED FOR A REBOOT.

The link you gave is some moron trying to handwave away all of the problems
that systemd introduces, while still not providing very good solutions to
the problems that we had with SysVInit.
