Yes, that is so.

I don't have (big) problems with systemd. I think. In general, I'm
happy. Well, perhaps that if there is a problem I can not edit an script
and solve it. I have to wait for the devs to solve and distribute it.
Ie, little problems are now more difficult to hack or solve for the


I am asking you to do take the time to learn about systemd before
considering your opinion on it as complete.

Perhaps have an easy to find document, a FAQ, would help: I have this
problem, what do I do? Not a long documentation to study and comprehend,
but something practical and to the point, with actual examples to copy
and use.

Like: How do I start something before/during/after boot/after some other
service. It is a question often asked: this week, I think.

Maybe it exists, but I wouldn't know where.

This one is good:

systemd is downright amazing on servers. Want to make a service that
automatically deletes files in a folder every time they appear? That's
like 3 lines in a systemd unit file, done

Is that in the fAQ? ;-)

using systemd's more dynamic features, like having services start only
when required, is a dreamy way of optimising your servers

Doesn't xinetd do it?
