> From what I can see on the RHEL lists that have many professional admins, there's been no hue and cry, no sky falling, etc.
I don't know about you, but I admin about 400 odd servers, we've got about 40,000 globally. I've still got RHEL 4 boxes (Soon to be decomm'ed) Only some (5 - 10) of the boxes I built last year are RHEL 6. Everything else is RHEL 5 still. It works, I've no need to go above that for our purposes.
Now, I've got some new re-purposed boxes that I've started building with RHEL 7, and I've just started dropping myself into systemd.
Changing the startup scripts of *every* vendors application out there? No commercial applications are setup for systemd, this is going to be a loooooooooooooooong drawn out process to make this work.
RHEL 7 is brand new, very few people have started using it, the customers haven't had a chance to comment on it yet.
