Thank you for the reviews about SystemD. I don't know much about init systems, as long as they let me log in on my system that's much I need to know now(I'm myself lazy).
But something that worry me about SystemD it's his premature adoption by the major players on the distro game. Everyone one of them has just adopted making the lives of users like me a little complicated.
Just this past weekend I was tinkering trying to mount an Android development environment on some virtualBox virtual machine. I have to download 4 separate distros(Fedora, CentOS, OpenSuse, Debian) to make that damn environment. Everysingle one of them had issues installing and when I went to the konsole(with k as I'm a KDE user) there's no way I could see what was happening!
do you try to see the logs? systemctl with god knows what parameters. Wanna see the network config? go kill a goat and made a ritual...
As a somewhat power user(been using Linux since 99 with intervals of Windows, knows a couple of commands, mount things by hand, download and compile software, change configuration options, etc) I feeled like that was not Linux anymore.
I feel just like when I was learning to use the OS back on '99: A complete noob who doesn't knows the system, nor the commands to make the thing works.If this trend continues I'm gonna check some BSD or stick to some older distro.
Anyway, thank you for the effort and time you've dedicated to the SystemD reviews, I'm reading and trying to make sense of the things you write and I don't know.
Keep the good work brother!
