I’m not a fan of Docker container and the microservice approach. Application containers limit me too much - especially only one process to be started. In contrast, I have too many unnecessary processes active in the system-container LXC with systemd. Unfortunately, more and more Debian packages require systemd.
Can we slim down systemd for LXC container so that only systemctl service start / stop works and the other (useless for a container) components are deactivated? Deactivation of the network manager is a known tweak. And the rest?
