Interesting how more and more distros are adopting it but there is so much negativity and complaining wherever I look. Seems contradictory...

Interesting read of the reasoning for the adoption by debian:

I modded you up because that's a great link - very informative. I notice though that the argument consists of, for the moment, people talking past each other. That is, I don't see much in Debian's position statement that refutes what the anti-systemd crowd is putting forth as their argument.

Can't wait to see how this plays out. I confess I am for the most part more swayed by the anti-systemd crowd's position, but I like transparency and simplicity in a system, and systemd decreases both.

You're right, I expected (much) more from Debian. It reads more or less as "we like it, it's popular, so nyeah".

Same thinking here. But it may be that they are "forced" into accepting it. For example GNOME 3.8 depends on systemd.
It will be interesting to see if/how long Slackware/Gentoo/etc hold on from the adoption...

As a faithful fan and user for almost as long as it has existed, all I can say is "you know what? fuck GNOME." There are plenty of other great desktops out there and I'm sick of this shit. This has been a number of years in the coming, but they've done it to themselves.
