      You better to take stand against cars and electricity. Humans surely can survive without cars and electricity. Yet, while these are not being absolutely mandatory for survival, they improve quality of life. Same could be told about systemd. Sure, system would not fail to boot without systemd. Yet systemd is meant to offload admin from many routine tasks and long term plan is to keep servers and desktops working with a minimum efforts. Say, imagine something gone wrong. Windows user would spend a day reinstalling OS and reconfiguring it. Hardcore *nix guru would spend 2 days in search of obscure root cause and could nail it down. But what about downtime?! In future systemd would allow to just revert snapshot in quick and simple ways. So it would take some seconds to grab your time machine (aka older snapshot), go back before point things gone wrong and try again. So system can be back into order in matter of SECONDS. Something that none of you, loud mouthed nuts can do. Except maybe some Solaris/ZFS admins (I wonder why nobody yells at Solaris for such features? Is it completely died?)

      P.S. and yeah, hate-driven development can produce heck a lot of lulz

      • Systemd is a a "system daemon" and "basic userspace building block to make an OS from"
