text-mode plymouth plugin. I'm sure there's lots more.

Don't worry, we made that knowledge obsolete.

That's the real problem... Managing unix-like systems has always been something of a specialized art, but typically worth learning because you can re-use the knowledge for years/decades even though different vendors have always tried to make it difficult to use their training with anything else. But that doesn't seem to apply any more. How do you expect places that manage servers to keep their 24x7 operations staff (in several locations...) aware of all the administrative differences from day to day and among versions likely to be running concurrently? If you can completely automate something, fine, but I do not believe there is any chance of doing that correctly for anything but trivial (and client...) configurations. So how do we get the dynamic gunk out of the way on the more complex machines providing the services?
