>>> And SysVInit just works well and it is simply enough. It has much less
dependencies than systemd. Do not make unneeded weight on people to learn
systemd in addition to shell scripts, if systemd is powerful that also
means there is a lot to learn. I really doubt non-standards task can be
solved with systemd without shell scripts (or similar), and every serious
UNIX admin must know shell programming anyway.
>> This is like saying "A horse drawn carrage works well enough, why do you

> You need an airplane because Earth is 40,000 km in round and because you
have a reason to travel to a distant location. Or just you want to do some
sport? But I know my possibilities and I wouldn't spend my money on an
airplane just for sport, to produce an airplane you have to take raw
materials out of this planet, you have to spend power, human time, make
pollution, etc.

That's exactly how I feel when I want to create a small daemon using a 
SystemV init script. I feel like building an airplane from scratch while 
I would just use a bike.

Introducing the concept of "possibilities" is interesting: sometimes, 
you need some choices in your available tools to perform the same task, 
depending on your current need…
