Re: [opensuse] Getting rid of systemd and putting sysv back

Mount units may either be configured via unit files, or via /etc/fstab
(see fstab(5) for details). Mounts listed in /etc/fstab will be
converted into native units dynamically at boot and when the
configuration of the system manager is reloaded. See
systemd-fstab-generator(8) for details about the conversion.

Which violates the computing principle of ONE SOURCE for each piece of data.

Having both /etc/fstab and "mounting units" (whatever the FUCK that means),
is deliberately taking things back to the 1950's, when, frankly, we didn't
understand principles of sound programming practices nearly as well as we
do today.

Seriously, the whole systemd thing look like 2 refugees from the 1950's
(or East Germany, take you pick) suddenly decided to "improve" the most
advanced operating system in the world with pie-in-the-sky ideas which
conveniently forget to include DECADES of accumulated computing wisdom.

If you want your computer controlled by a monolithic, incomprehensible
monstrosity, Microsoft has an operating system for YOU.

Now, please leave Linux alone, and take your SystemD with you.
