Some day there will be actual end-user-friendly systemd documentation
somewhere, consolidating all of these pieces of wisdom together. I hope.
Note: systemd is not for end-users, it is for system administrator and
systemd is absolutely for end-users, because:
* Some systemd-running systems are home desktop computers with a single
physical user; in this case, the distinction between "administrator" and
"user" may well only exist as a hallucination of the computer, with no
basis in the external physical world. If the computer I'm typing this
e-mail on breaks down, I have to fix it myself.
* systemd can, in any event, be used to manage service-like processes
that form part of a user's login session, using unit files stored in
that user's XDG Base Directories.
