Should be replaced by sth. Wayland/Mir-alike years ago.
    Oh please, throwing UNIX-way argument against systemd is tiresome. systemd is made for Linux, not UNIX like.

      Linux is a UNIX-like. In fact, both Torvalds and Stallmann have designed it to be UNIX-like.

        UNIX-way is our tradition. Why? Because it just works. Single responsibility principle is crucial in Linux world (that's why Linux took over servers and supercomputer - it is easy to maintain and you're not bouded to any set of softwar, you can change parts of your system at your will).

        And systemd is so violent to this Tradition as if pope supported gay marriage. I don't want to hear about both X is anti-Tradition too, and with Wayland and Mir we are hopefully going back to our roots - simple, easy to maintain programs, not bloated monolithic combines.

          It would be nice to keep the current topic out of anything related to religion to avoid endless loop.
          Back to the the point, does UNIX-way mean blindly following the principle by copying the flaws in practice like sysv or being inspired by its principle? systemd is about the latter. You can built it without using all options.
          In fact the design of systemd as a suite of integrated tools that each have their individual purposes but when used together are more than just the sum of the parts, that's pretty much at the core of UNIX philosophy.
          About systemd being monolithic and bloated see:
