Comment Re:People who like systemd (Score 1) 416

The distros are using systemd because it makes writing startup scripts easier. They take up fewer lines. That's about it. It has nothing to do with DevOps.

I am pretty sure those distros who started this spend more money paying systemd developers than they save from writing easier startup scripts.

And what is stopping you from using your stuff the old way with RHEL7? Having init scripts for your daemons that you just copy, etc? Using the old method of logging? Buggy startup process taking out the entire startup, you see that a lot? Hasn't happened for me yet in RHEL7. I'm not saying you should necessarily like systemd, but you can pretty much ignore it and go about your business. Sounds to me like there's more going on behind the scenes than what you're saying, or you're deluding yourself...
