Systemd adds filesystem mount tool


Re: I've forgotten...

sysvinit is a relic that lacks way too many modern features.

SystemD actually manages your processes, sysvinit just invokes scripts and forgets if the process is even running, it doesn't even care about the quality of your script. It's down to the developers/administrators to even ensure that what is there, is readable and functional. Systemd actually allows you to configure things properly, have dependency chains and the ability to respawn processes on failure. Systemd is far more friendly with modern hardware compared to sysv. Perhaps SystemD is not the best replacement but it's still a superior one to sysvinit. Fact is hardware changes and as hardware changes, software needs to keep up to pace, the problem is sysvinit is not up to pace, there is the problem.
