Comment: Nice things about systemd (Score 1) 928

IMHO there are many nice things to be said about systemd:
  • 1) it provides a predictable baseline set of features that developers can rely on
  • 2) it allows apps to create and manage services using a well-defined API rather than random, break-prone, kludgey scripts
  • 3) dependency resolution, evenement handling etc.
  • 4) at last it gets rid of the *nix heritage
