Can you please stop calling features of systemd you don't like
"systemd-bloat" at every given opportunity? It is not being respectful
to those who work on the project and doesn't help your argument.
It works well with this one. It's part of systemd, for some reason. It's
bloat. It's one letter off from the actual name of the software.
It doesn't need to be part of systemd to integrate with it. We don't need to
make our system more exclusive to make use of some systemd features, we can
just use the more powerful bootloader, GRUB2, and implement what it needs to
make use of these systemd "features".
