There's a lengthy article out that goes through the innards of systemd's architecture.

The article was published a week ago but a Phoronix reader just tipped me off about it this morning about this piece with systemd continuing to be very controversial amongst Linux users. The reader explains, "It's an analysis of systemd internals, and claims to be the 'first of its kind' when it comes to actual technical criticism of systemd and its components. The author gives an in-depth overview of the internals that fall within the scope of the article and cites problems such as non-deterministic dependency resolution, ordering related failures, a 'difficult to predict execution model', and a lot of other points."
