    Great article, but due to my little understanding of operating systems, let me ask this…are the terms processes and services one and the same thing in this context? I know some processes at times serve other processes but is this why they are called services too?

    Very well explained. All my doubts are now clear.

    hello. thanks for the article. I want to ask something. If now the management process is handled by systemctl, it means we can’t use the “service” based commands anymore?

    • @Rizal,
      systemd is supposed to support backward compatibility with -at least- some sysvinit-based well-known commands, but trust me, that doesn’t always seem to be the case. Moving forward, all of us who have become used to service-based commands will have to learn the systemd-based ones (systemctl and all that). The effort is well worth it, though.
