I don’t understand why we have systemd timers.

Yes, they can do more than cron jobs can, but I don’t understand them nevertheless:

As with many things systemd, if Linux was introduced today, from scratch, I agree they’re “nicer” or “cleaner”. But since they come in addition to existing solutions, I keep being drawn to the BSDs and their more Unixy way of life without the urge to change true and tested ways of doing things.

#linux #systemd #unix #openbsd
