So you're okay with it providing networking, but not timer units? Timer
units were a very simple addition on top of the existing event loop,
while networkd is a significant project.

The systemd console would replace the virtual terminals provided by the
kernel. The NTP client might make sense as something enabled by default,
although I don't know if it's planned to be.

I'm don't see how I'm making it personal with a bit of sarcasm.

You already made it quite personal by promoting FUD with gems like this:

Do you think Tom and Dave are chauvanistic? Or did you not really read
what you linked to?

I'm not sure what you mean by this.

No, I'm asking you to stop spreading misinformation and attacks on the
developers behind the project (who also develop Arch Linux). If you
interrupt a constructive thread with FUD, you can expect to be called out.

No one said it's perfect.
