Anyways yeah I’m in the “systemd is fundamentally flawed” camp and also the “systemd is a tool used by Red Hat and other big Linux vendors to homogenize the Linux ecosystem” camp and also the “Poettering is a useful idiot and kind of an asshole camp”• from
Yeah, I don't particularly like systemd either, or Poettering's software opinions for that matter. Systemd has a few good things going for it - it has a nice command-line interface, the
cron replacement is a lot more useful, and I like that it can be used to manage services for individual login sessions, not just system-wide services. But it is way too monolithic, and it flies in the face of customization and software freedom. Basically everything requires it for something or other, and you can't easily swap out many parts of it for alternatives that you prefer.
