[Discuss] SysVinit vs. systemd

  Mike Gancarz sums up the Unix philosophy: 1. Small is beautiful. 2.
  Make each program do one thing well. ... We have built the Internet
  and all modern Internet services on those principles. Systemd's design
  and implementation violates nearly all of them.

  Should it be a surprise that so many long-term Unix and Linux
  developers, architects, and administrators recoil at the thought of
  something like systemd? It might seem that the design of systemd
  purposefully dispensed with the wisdom of 45 years of Unix development
  and struck out in a different direction just to spite the old guard.
