Given the title, I'll allow that most of these points are defensive and brusque. Unfortunately, this tends to be par for the course for the developer, and I think that turns people off.

Fundamentally, systemd tried solving too many problems at once, in a ways that inadvertently annoyed people. It replaced so much of the core infrastructure that upgrading systems resulted in an admin experience that feels alien. Giving people new tools to deal with things like binary logging != instantly changing every admin's CLI muscle memory.

I'm not saying that systemd doesn't solve valid problems (the issues it addresses are truly quite important) - it just goes about it in a dramatically jarring way.




> most of these points are defensive and brusque

I prefer reading "This is wrong, because ..." over "This is right, but ...", since it's more honest.


The myths are a mix of those that are correct but often misunderstood and those who just are plain wrong. Those which are plain wrong cannot be responded to with "This is right, but ...".

Not really...
