However, you and several others are rejecting systemd on ideological
grounds. There's not much that can be done about that, short or
re-implementing systemd according to your vision.
I personally reject the design of systemd.
To paraphrase Joel Spolsky :
"As i see it every new feature systemd has is a tradeoff, between the
who could really use such a feature and the people who are just
going to get overwhelmed by all the options. Even if you think that
the new feature is all good and can't hurt because
"people who don't care can just ignore it," you're forgetting that
the people who allegedly don't care are still forced to look at that
and figure out if they need it."
IMHO, systemd don't have that ineffable quality ( of doing less ) that
knowledgable people to use it even if it doesn't have flaws.
