"Just do it then" is pretty much the motto of open source as far as I'm concerned. What's with all these articles reacting to systemd and discussing what should or shouldn't be done with linux, as if it were a monolothic entity? If you want to build a server focused distro without systemd, just do it. I'll keep using arch.

And the "homogenizing all distros by adopting systemd" argument in the article is bull. Weren't distros previously "homogenized" by running on sysvinit?

OK, so if I want to avoid using systemd in my crappy, personal distro with 3 users, that's one thing. But what I really want is for the big guns to stop packaging systemd so I like their product more. Big distinction.

Anybody who wants to use zafiro17nux as their primary distro might not have to deal with systemd, but they're in for a huge world of pain otherwise.

I think that at this point, its pretty much a lost cause. All the major distros have accepted it. What would make them go back on their decision? Plenty of people are fine with systemd.
