"And for people who want to read through log files without having to become regex experts." ??? So people who just scan the entire text file and do a search in their viewer program could only do so with systemd? And here's me thinking that even vi allows a simple search on /var/log/message ...

Seriously someone who doesn't know how to use tail -F or cat and grep should NOT be admining a Unix based system.
