I humbly disagree. I'm mainly interested in the perspectives of systemd on

For instance: I have in the past had downtime on servers I maintain because
Debian out of the box doesn't babysit processes. Apache or MySQL hit by a
random once-in-a-year irreproducible crash? Boom.

The day of better systemd integration in Debian, where I can uninstall
monit, or at least relegate it to application level testing (does this page
return 200 OK), I'm a happy camper.

If you take a look at the systemd feature set, much of it is aimed towards
servers, not desktops.
