Perhaps the question should be: In the face of continued great ongoing resistance against a new init system why is it being shoved down everyone's throats? I have looked at systemd. I want no part of it. At all. It looks and feels like something from microsoft.

As mentioned in the article, what ongoing resistance is actually there? I am in no way expert on systemd but the whole thing may be being blown out of proportion by few people who don't like systems or Sievers. Or who are resisting the change.And I keep wondering why would the more knowledgeable people (who make decisions at Debian etc) agree to go with it if it was that bad.Edit: Accidentally posted as reply to wrong post. Not sure how to fix...

You make a good point. You are no expert. Okay. Your care factor may be finite compared to people who administrate production machines You could grab a copy of VM software, download some BSD and Linux ISOs to have a play. Screw the system up. Break it. Fix it. Install software. Get it working. Imagine doing this across 50 boxes. Now imagine 500. 5000. Make changes in a sysv init sequence. Make changes in a systemd system init. Learn what people are talking about. It's fun!

Perhaps next time try addressing at least one of the real points I made.
