systemd sure is a drama queen, eh? For something that's supposed to be simply a behind-the-scenes, don't-screw-it-up-just-do-it-simply-easily-and-reliably, systemd seems to have become the center of the universe. [Pretty soon the OS will be there to keep systemd working, instead of the other way-round.]

All that said, I tend to hew to Louis' take - modify the stock install as minimally as possible. [I think I find fewer things down the road that want to bite me in the night, if I do it that way...]

Still, I would like Louis' take.
