Meanwhile the situation has improved. There are many things improved
including documentation. What I can recommend is the "systemd cheat sheet"
which can be found in different flavors around.

Just few examples.

My personal experience is ... after looking into it I used systemd free
debian for some time until I was ready to move my system to systemd. It
took me few hours ... mainly fixing some custom networking logic (scripts
that would execute on certain conditions) and migrating few scripts.

Since than I can not complain. I moved all systems from init to systemd - no

I can just conclude that the main problem is the unwillingness to grow. Of
course I can understand this - why fixing something again after some 10-15y
when it was working flawlessly ... but guys this is called evolution - for
good or for bad. Using the default system brings the advantage that it is
easily maintainable - and working on each and every package to work around
systemd is IMO less efficient.

As for the Felix's problem I think it is related to default manager.
Did you try to remove or fix the service?
