The assumption that I am free to choose what platform I support is bonkers. I am asking to choose the init system. I make multiplatform software. I need to support every distro, and it has fractured in to SysV and SysD. It will fracture again further in the future. Locking in is stupid stupid stupid and anti-UX

Answer the question AC.

What actual issues and typical usecases do systemd address? I've heard about all the minor nuisances it supposedly addresses although none of them have ever effected me personally. But please tell me why I **need** it. And if you can't please tell me why it is default? It should not be default is all.

Apps should support SysV init and Systemd and if this is the case, why is systemd default as it is quite frankly not the lowest common denominator? Each time I ask this question I get personally berated by the pulseaudio meathead's personal fan club. I want actual answers because so far I haven't been shown a good reason for this, other than "Why not stupid old neckbeard?"

It flies in the face of everything I've ever been taught about UNIX. But don't berate me with bullshit like "Linux isn't UNIX".

Well I get shiny RHEL7. I build my systems like RHEL6 (I don't do a lot of custom init stuff).

RHEL7 fails to boot after a while because of systemd. No one knows why. At first I was told it was hardmounts. Take them out in rescue mode, no booty.

Systemd by design tries to mount nfs shares, before it even starts up the network, out of the box! Systemd supresses everything unless you tell it to. Why? Because some hotshot idiot thought I was using RHEL to run a desktop? Oh hey, just what I wanted BINARY LOGS THAT BREAK ALL MY EXISTING AUTOMATION.

This is the problem with systemd, it is unportable, monolithic and subject to dictatorship. And what does it offer me day to day in a grinding development lab? Nothing. Also yes, Embedded systems. I still support those too.
