crp Posted October 27, 2022 Share Posted October 27, 2022 (edited) So it has been a couple of years now with my dealing with systemD on CentOS , Alma and Debian. Got to say that i hate it. Actually it isn't the systemd for setting up and running the core services but the adoption of its philosophy and framework by applications. A perfect example would be firewalld and iptables. I am convinced that not only was nothing gained by replacing iptables with firewalld , there are major losses. Linux tool applications like this used to be simple, now they are all overly complex. To me it is the White Tower of Academia taking over the philosophy that was Linux applications should do one thing, do it simply and do it so that internally and externally the tools can be easily chained together to make new tools or add options. So, which modern distros do not use systemd? Is it feasible to use tools like iptables on distros that insist on systemd? Edit: oh , https://itsfoss.com/systemd-free-distros Edited October 27, 2022 by crp added link to a web site that lists the distros and why they exist. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
