Well, as cron is not broken, works fine and is understood, and
the distro will keep having it available for people that prefer
it, what need do we have to migrate the system cron jobs to
systemd? What benefit do we obtain?

Why at all dedicate any effort to the migration? For the
novelty?

for one reason it gives a really nice interface of all jobs
active/non-active, last run, next run with i assume superior
journal integration. from hazy recolections cron gives very poor
overview, not so easy to understand failures and is not so easy to
debug. and like i said duplicated sub-systems does not make for
cleaner system.

I find cron easy to debug.
