I just converted my Arch desktop to pure Systemd (not just initscripts compatibility, pure Systemd files. So no more rc.conf etc).
Following the Wiki and being a little careful it's actually pretty damn easy. Now I'm not sure whether my system is ever meant to go bang because of it, but I doubt it, seems to work just fine and all my services and daemons etc are all activated.
Anyway once again that Wiki proves it's worth, it allows just users like me to make a switch like that fast and easy.
Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but if it's this easy to make the conversion, shouldn't the conversion of the distro as a whole (i.e install media etc) be just as easy or is there more to it than that?
