    Hello Gerrit!

    05 May 19 21:47, you wrote to me:

    Nope, at least folks on Gentoo or Slackware can run their
    systems without it, too.

    Thank you Gerrit, great news, at least 5 sysop are free! :)

    If that's what you're after, you'll certainly have to add FreeBSD
    users (like myself), too.

    FreeBSD is a story apart, it's a real and pure unix like early systemV unixes. Linux isn't a pure Unix. :) This is the reason because we were infected with Systemd. :(

    From a FreeBSD guy:

    I'm not saying that the concept as such is flawed. For me, it's rather the implementation and the management that drove me off from day 1 (+ that it deliberately broke everything I was relying on). This is amplyfied by the fact that the machines I care about have practically nothing to gain from faster boot times, have no dynamic network changes, no hardware changes, no virtualization... So there is not much to gain from systemd for me.

    Elaborating on that, I concur with Benno that FreeBSD is actually lacking a solution to fill the place that is filled by systemd on Linux. But as I wrote before, I hope this to be done in a better way by FreeBSD folks than LP did it for Linux.
