I don’t like the concept of systemd (too bloated for my taste), but it’s good to see some diversity on that front. The systemd developers always claim that they were just implementing an “interface” of which there could be many implementations. Maybe we’ll hear more from this project and see this excuse become a reality.
I like systemd. It is the first system where I was actually able to tinker without feeling intimidated. I’m not an admin, nor I have time or will to learn systemd or it’s alternatives. Call it “chic seeing the world for the first time syndrom” if you are cynical.
Change is good. We must replace SystemD with this.
