Ditto regarding desktops, which I'm not too worried about, however on the Server Dept, not such a good idea.
We have some older machines that we look after, that need to have the patches checked and blocked due to software/ hardware installed.

Just hoping our patch mangement system will have a solution.

"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 ...

So I don't want to manually search a text file and your answer is that I should use another tool to manually search a text file? An editor no less reading a continuously changing file?

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