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"

And a lot of limitations and bad behavior compared to cron.

- from limited experience cron bugs/problems can be quite opaque
so why is everything not moved to systemd?

Because systemd timer problems are much worse?
