15 Well, to play the anti-$DEITY advocate, you may also say that
16 parallelizing helps you discover bugs in the dependencies that you
17 otherwise never would.
19 I have run fedora with systemd for a while, and I was able to make the
20 boot wicked fast. But it wasn't automatic, not due to systemd itself
21 but due to packages like NetworkManager doing incredibly wasteful
22 things by default.
