    I scanned through the new FreeDesktop Boot Loader Specification, and it seems like this is exactly what systemd-boot has been doing for years. So what's changing?

      AFAIK nothing have changed in systemd-boot but that FreeDesktop have formalized it as a standard now.

        See the link to the mailing list release notes, I think it's referred to as sd-boot there. Some additions/improvements but nothing major changed.

                They will come as soon as they finish editing their .mouserc to set the cursor's new coordinates.

                  Can this load daemons on-demand when there is a connection to the TCP port?
                  As a developer who don't always need daemons running but only occasionally when developing, it would be nice to have Apache, Lighttpd, MySQL, PostgreSQL to not start up system boot, but later start when something tries to connect.

                    Um, hasn't that been one of the advertised features of systemd since day 1?
