And did it boot slower than with init scripts and waste valuable
memory. Lookup systemd on the buildroot list and you will see. Debian
may run on even a cheap toaster one day but systemd would causes issues
when that is possible.

I discount systemd for many reasons. All I have beeen meaning to say is
lets not shout about it and users should look up about systemd before
you learn to use it as you may regret it down the line.
