Thanks for the pointer. I just saw that Lukáš Nykrýn replied to the
ticked I previously mentioned [1] reaffirming what you said.

So, my question now is what would be an alternative to systemd user
instance (i.e. a mechanism for users to configure, manage and control
their services) on CentOS 7?

Thanks and best regards,
