No, you are wrong. Your rough idea of systemd is not enough for a useful
discussion of systemd or init systems in general. Most of the questions
that you are asking do not make sense. I probably don't have enough
knowledge for a useful discussion either, but I know enough to be able
to tell that you don't. I admire Jon's patience with you in trying to
address most of your last email, but I don't think this is going to get
anywhere without you first doing a lot of additional self-study.
