  1. I just hope you`re not going towards systemd. If you don`t want the biggest, longest and most painful headache that you ever had, just keep the good ol` sysV init in place 🙂 I curse the day I decided to switch my distro to systemd (“`cause that`s the future”)! Damn, if you think the Windows Registry is a mess, play for a few months with systemd and you`ll see how simple and beautifull the Registry seems in comparision!
