And Lennart blames Linus[1] for why he gets hate mail.

We are giving RHEL-7 a pass on this iteration. We have installed it on
a couple of test hosts and are not favourably impressed with much of
the user interface.  At least not from the sys-admin side of things.
This is not to imply that there is nothing good in 7.  There are at
lot of improvements that we certainly value.  But it is too early in
systemd development for us to waste time debugging somebody else's
pipe-dream on our dime.

We will see what 8 offers and decide then whether to move to something
