Re: [opensuse-factory] why is tumbleweed still using cron?

it seems we have 2 systems for default timed events - systemd and cron - why?
- 2 systems is 2X things to learn, 2X things to monitor, 2X things to go wrong
- systemd has a (very) nice interface/overview "systemctl list-timers --all"
- from limited experience cron bugs/problems can be quite opaque
so why is everything not moved to systemd?

systemd units need to spend much more time from user to write, than simple 'crontab -e' command. Yes, you can set your tasks in more flexible way via systemd-timers, especially by using AccuracySec= parameter instead of cron-based tasks.

So, let both of planning services -- cron and systemd-timers -- will be alive: everyone could use, what is the most convenient for his own planning-tasks.
