The D in Systemd stands for 'Dammmmit!' A nasty DHCPv6 packet can pwn a vulnerable Linux box


Re: There is a reason ...

Well, it depends what you mean by "why bother with". Who's doing the "bother"ing?

If you mean "why bother writing it?", well, the systemd authors think it's a good idea and would *like* people to use it. So far, distros have generally decided not to adopt it. I'm just relaying facts here, I'm not sure why I'm getting flooded with downvotes. Everything I said is easily verifiable. Just go install a default Fedora or Ubuntu system and check for yourself: you'll have systemd, but you *won't* have systemd-networkd running.
