I guess everyone will have an opinion of systemd whether it be good or 
bad. The only resolution is to either use a distro that has systemd on 
it, use a distro that DOESN'T have systemd on it...or build your OWN 
distro and don't include systemd! I guess when it all boils down to it, 
there's STILL choice.....even when it doesn't seem like there is!
