What's wrong with tgr's article? Tell me, please. Don't wrote "I don't find real merit", tell: "They lacks merit because ...". I want arguments, not propaganda - I'm really tired of reading manipulations, like this table: http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/why.html. For example: "Conditional execution: by file existance". WTF? When it's not embedded into C-routine it's doesn't count? It's insanity. Or manipulation ("More, more, I need more red squares for init column!").
From my POV systemd is created and maintained by developers who doesn't understood and doesn't care about sysadmins work. See following thread: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/systemd-devel/2011-... - "shell scripts used for glue things together. Bueh! It's unclean, it's impure, all daemons should works in one way, OUR WAY".
