Systemd change has Linux users up in arms
A change in the most recent version of systemd, the init system that has been recently adopted by many GNU/Linux distributions, has users up in arms.
The change, announced a few days ago, kills background processes by default when a user logs out, the opposite of the behaviour that was exhibited earlier.
This would cause problems for users, for example, of terminal multiplexers like screen and tmux as they would be unable to return to a process once they have logged out.
If a server admin had a bunch of scripts that logged into a server, then started a process using screen and logged out, the process would be killed. This is a fairly common thing that many admins do.
