Tested, simply sophisticated and as fast as you make it. Once you get
to desktop level and SSDs, who cares about a few seconds.

The fastest booting systems (< 1 second) use init and won't use systemd.

It would be good if you would practice what you preach especially when
he has made hugely valid contributions that can't be fixed using
systemd. Systemds functions can be replicated in the unix style of many
tools doing a single job well.

WRT pulse audio it won't run under a grsecurity kernel so first
I'd say define modern desktop. How functional, how secure.


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
