Yawn.

Instead of actually answering, you distribute the leaflet.

SysV init is broken because it has no process monitoring? No.
Process monitoring isn't in its scope. Because it has no socket
activation? No.

Process monitoring: if you are serious about it, there's runit,
and daemontools. Socket activation? Try perhaps xinetd (before
this branches off to another sub-thread: I *know* it's not
*exactly* the same).

Some of us even like SysV's narrower scope, go figure.

Systemd doesn't "do" sound: is it broken for that?

C'm on. You can do better to contribute to a productive discussion
than that.

Sorry for sounding ranty, but yours was exactly the kind of post I
always see heating up the flamewars, with opinions and underhanded
contempt for the other side disguised as "facts" (no, I don't assume
it is intentional, mind you).
