Comment I'll say it (Score -1, Troll) 151

Systemd goes against the UNIX philosophy of doing one thing and doing it well. Imagine 10 years ago if you proposed this monstrosity of programs and system hooks along with binary log files (so now you need a different set of text manipulation tools like grep, awk, or sed to do the same thing as the old tools). Why should a window manager or "desktop environment" need dependency on something to manage system startup? I can't wait until it becomes full Windows style with a registry.dat file to contain everything from mount points to audio volume.

There are three kinds of people: men, women, and unix.
