Re: Honest inquiry
"Fedora, which now has an exceedingly long boot time on a mechanical disk, well in excess of 40 seconds" with systemd.
Jeez, well if 40 seconds is "exceedingly long" you already have other problems. We're running RHEL7 (with systemd baked in) on server and high-end workstation hardware that takes in excess of 4 minutes to decide who it is, why it's been put on this Good Green Earth, also where its arse is. That's before the kernel loads the ramdisk.
systemd doesn't solve any problems for us, but it brings plenty of new ones.
