How to Crash Systemd in One Tweet

It's only because of the declarative syntax of systemd. If we could reverse engineer the systemd syntax with something more stable, we could go back to business as usual. Init scripts are hard to write. Writing configurations that are standard are easy. Systemd just happens to be bad code around a good idea - declarative definitions of services. However, trying to be everything and do everything is causing the bigger problems.

My system hangs because it takes just a little longer for all my items to come online. And that in turns brings 32GB, Core-I7 4720HQ to its knees on a reboot. I always have to restart the display-manager because too many things are starting at once.
