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?

(to both points): evidence/examples/references? arch wiki gives overwhelming
advantages for systemd timers.
