Yes, ISTR being told during the flame wars that systemd was great for desktops 
because it speeded up the boot process, but, just possibly, not so good for 
servers.

My own experience is sadly the exact opposite.  I find it very slow, including 
some very awkward hangs.

Still, I shall just have to add the vagaries of systemd to the many things I 
need to learn urgently!
