1. The two biggest linux server service companies are betting their future billion dollars business on it. That is good enough for me. Im sure though that some basement powerusers are too leet to deal with this so the go 100% hipster and tell another story on phoronix. Well I guess Im gonna stick with the proven business succes here, sorry if that means Im less leet than youOriginally Posted by Sidicas
2. Yes this is effectly a lockin on Linux. But what is wrong with that? Sure it hits a snag when debian is trying be distroing everything but the kitchensink.
3. Systemds fast boot is more than a gimmick. It will cause less down time in unforseen events and during upgrades. Thats fine but nothing special. Having fast boot is the prime feature for infotainment systems in eg. cars. When you start the car, you expect feedback within 3 seconds. That is easy on systemd. Go look at the documentation and tools. It is a pleasure.
