Re: systemd isn't hated

"It's an indictment of OS designers (if not humanity in general) that anyone can still form the phrase 'improve boot times' in the year 2016."

Er what? Most Linux dists have used systemd for years now, and before that the likes of Ubuntu were toying with other ways to concurrently launch system services. I was comparing the current situation (fast boots, no hacky launch scripts) to what it was like before and what some people appear to be yearning for.

"That it's still being done in such a time-wasteful manner is indicative of something deeply negative."

It isn't being done in a time wasteful manner. That's the point. Most Linux dists have adopted systemd because it brings the OS up into a usable state in an efficient timely fashion.
