This is what I was referring to:

And after careful digesting it pretty much boils down to what I said. But
again, I personally only care about it to the level I care about part of
my boxes that stay Linux systemd no systemd no mater. I'm just trying to
help others to realize that there is no way to build systemd free Linux
distribution (that will have any future). You can hate anyone who doesn't
like systemd, but you can not disagree with them when they say there will
be no Linux without systemd in any observable future. To me it is merely
constatation of fact ;-)
