*10 WHOLE years*...  And bash is *STILL* impenetrable for you?

How about over 30 and it took me a week?  No, I don't carry a CS degree or cert of any kind either, just some high school.

For me, systemd has been an absolute nightmare of unexpected reboots and non-transparently broken processes with just plain bad implementations crammed onto my system.  Faster boot they said, except it ISN'T faster now, it's slower and MUCH more difficult to sort through to find out why with it's monolithic architecture and poor documentation.

It wasn't broken before.  What was being fixed?
