Here's one: sysvinit is unable to manage services.

You should read the manual page on inittab - that is what it does. It is clear you do not understand what initd is capable of whilst you criticize it.

You are both right. sysvinit is unable to manage services, but initd is. The problem is is that sysvinit is not initd. sysvinit is a festering pile of shell scripts that ignore almost every interesting feature of initd.

When systemd was first being developed a lot of the bug reports were around problems with system crashes that resulted in corrupted and unreadable binary logs. They were all closed as WON'T FIX and some basically said "it's your problem."

Since there were many of these bug reports you'll be able to give a link to one of them, right?

By the way, don't bother giving a link to bug 64116 without reading comment #3.

Other stuff that is a major PITA with systemd: OpenVPN. Whenever I change my .conf file I have to update systemd with some whacky config because it 'caches' my config file in it's own little world.

It does? news to me, I've just been setting up openvpn on my new jessie servers and nothing got "cached".

WTF is that about? Dunno but it's enough of a pain that I'll be jumping to the debian boxen to devuan and tossing the ubuntu for the same reason.

Wouldn't it just be easier to install sysvinit if you don't like systemd?
