After much reading, I consider systemd more suited to large, busy

Funny thing.  As far as I can tell, those of us who run production
servers are the ones who are most disturbed by the ways that systemd
wends its way into all aspects of a system.
Perhaps instead of "..more suited," it should have been "intended" for
servers.  After all, wasn't systemd adopted first for RHEL whose
market is mainly servers?

That probably has more to do with the people involved, and who they work for.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.  .... Yogi Berra
