Do you really think that's a good point. We want valid opinion here
not bashing.

Bash even is smaller than systemds core binary and think of everything
it can do which wouldn't be used even and how much more peer review it
has had and will always get than systemd. Unified scripts would get the
same as systemd, perhaps more because more eyes would understand or
even bother to look and report problems or improvements. Some of which
may be due to time saving silly edits by users but I'd say that is a
good thing.


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
