Once you enable lingering for a user, that user's timers will
trigger all the time.


I haven't yet found anything that I could do with cron that I can't
do with systemd timers, though sometimes the behaviour of cron where
it emails you the output (if any) is very convenient and is tricky
(but not impossible) to replicate with systemd timers.
