I reiterate my comment. The Unix administration book ( http://admin.com ) has more than 100 pages dedicated to daemons, booting, services and logging.

Should we stop doing all this unix-y crap and return to clean and pure world of AUTOEXEC.BAT and config.sys?

Because discussions of all aspects of multiple implementations of an entire operating system is comparable to one single component which used to be simple?

From a ISV view, all the different quirks and incompatibilities with distro specific additions to sysv were hardly simple. It was convoluted and poorly documented. systemd is a huge step up.

Used to be simple? LOL.

SysV scripts were never simple. They are almost always brittle and unreliable pieces of crap. Especially cross-distribution scripts (LSB? Ha!).
