      Seems like the functionally monolithic internal mess of constantly changing APIs is doing exactly what you'd expect to projects that try to pull in some parts of SystemD while re-implementing others in a less backwards way. The fact that the morons behind it are awful at communication obviously doesn't help.
      FYI: Debian's issue as stated in the article is that many maintainers can't be arsed to ship a init.d script for their package, making their software systemd-only.

      If init.d scripts were so cooler you would have the opposite, as systemd can run init scripts fine.

        Systemd API is public and documented. If other init systems want to implement it they can.

          " There are 1033 non-overridden instances of lintian detecting a service unit without an init.d script."

          hahahahahahah that's all Pottering's fault, he is deleting the init.d scripts.

              Truth is hard.

              source and binary packages, ZFS on root native, in the installer and highly integrated into the system, Boot environments, PF, Jails, you can switch the SSL version to libressl or change build options like Gentoo but you can do it for a few packages only so you're not rebuilding the whole dammed thing every update. clone the root to do something weird.. oh that bad, reboot and make it go away. It's boot loader is simple too, unlike grub. It's firewall is in a clean enough language you can write it with Vi in a few minutes but can also do cool things like dynamic tables.. so.. integrated adblocking by adding a <noads> table to PF.

              You know what I did recently is I put my browser in a FreeBSD jail then null mounted all my directories except sensitive ones back into the jail.. So I end up with a browser that can't go after my config files or ssh keys.

              It's fun finding new cool ways to put some of it's components together.

              You can do a lot of that stuff on various Linux distros.. but I haven't found one that can do all of it and do it easily without a lot of hacking.

                A major problem with systemd alternatives is that they have not moved with the times. They should have developed a shim to read systemd style service files. That way most startup scripts would no longer be necessary and the syntax for services could become standardised.

                No one has done this.

                  that's why you post bullshit
                  source and binary packages,
                  Every distro has that
                  ZFS on root native, in the installer and highly integrated into the system, Boot environments,
                  OpenSUSE does that with btrfs. Yes also "boot environments".
                  PF,
                  unknown
                  Jails,
                  Chroot
                  you can switch the SSL version to libressl
                  Can do that on OpenSUSE, probably others too. OpenWrt has like 4 different SSL libraries you can choose.

                  or change build options like Gentoo but you can do it for a few packages only so you're not rebuilding the whole dammed thing every update
                  Can do that on any distro using apt and rpm packages.

                  clone the root to do something weird.. oh that bad, reboot and make it go away.
                  OpenSUSE can do that if using btrfs for root, don't know about others.

                  It's boot loader is simple too, unlike grub.
                  While I agree that GRUB is bullshit, it's not a major problem.

                  It's firewall is in a clean enough language you can write it with Vi in a few minutes
                  ever used nftables on Linux? Not hard. (I mean not hard to use it, of course firewalling stuff can be complex but that's not a tool issue)

                  but can also do cool things like dynamic tables.. so.. integrated adblocking by adding a <noads> table to PF.
                  this is better than just dumping a blacklist in the host file? Because that's not really hard and works fine.

                  You know what I did recently is I put my browser in a FreeBSD jail
                  Chroot

                  I haven't found one that can do all of it and do it easily without a lot of hacking.
                  I would say OpenSUSE can do all you asked without particular issues.
                  Apart from boot environments, every other distro can do the same, using more or less the same tools.

                    Lack of any desire to have a not-quite-ready distinguishing feature.

                    Ubuntu only provides long-term support for packages in its quite limited "main" repository, not in "universe". And the default install includes many packages from "universe"! So Ubuntu in my opinion only pretends to provide long term support for their distribution.

                      Yes, I see you have a lot of poor implementations of good stuff in FreeBSD... and all of that stuff is harder on Linux.. chroot... lol You know a jail isn't chroot right? ...well.. who knows.. maybe Linux will catch up some day.. I should thank systemd tho, I probably wouldn't have switched to BSD without it.
