There is no parallelization, no socket activation and no auto mounting.
In no way can it be as fast as systemd.

It's not only about speed, but speed is a nice bonus. Its also about
reliability. But I'm not going to enumerate the advantages of systemd
over and over again. Just read the blog posts by Lennart ;).

Which systems do you have in mind? Personally I can tell you out of
experience that my system boots up faster with systemd.

On a "modern desktop" you probably have bigger concerns regarding
security then running grsecurity. That said it should run fine with
SElinux, which Fedora is using by default. Furthermore grsecurity seems
to focus on servers anyway, so I'm not sure why you even bring this up?
