indeed, i also run it on my Sheevaplug and more recently Pandaboard --
my new toy :-)

to reiterate the above ... it works fantastic.  the Pandaboard runs 9
custom unit files (1/2 of which are just mods to the shipped unit

u.net.dhcp at .service
u.net.static at .service
u.openvpn.service (writing now :-)

... and combined with 2 custom mkinitcpio hooks (to autogenerate
uImage/uInitrd files) every single aspect of the system is fully

and ALL units, together, sans comments and empty lines, total a
whopping 97 lines ...

by comparison, the iptables and dnsmasq rc.d scripts over 60 lines EACH.

on this system, all systemd processes are using less memory than ntpd,
sshd, rsyslog, bash, dhcpd ... in fact it's among the lightest of them

it's barely using more than TOP! bang. systemd++
