Because he's funded. And I strongly suspect that a lot of that funding
comes from M$'s interest in Upstream.

Actually, I've got CentOS on my 9 yr old Netbook, that I use while
traveling. Otherwise, my home workstation is CentOS 6, and I am NOT
looking forward to EOL.

But Valeri's correct: people are tired of screaming and yelling about
systemd, because we've had years now of the response being "tough, it's
the Wave of the Future", and Poettering is like upper management: they
know, I mean, Everything, so why should they need to talk to end users (or
working sysadmins)?

Lack of screaming and yelling filling this venue is more because "what's
the point?", and we have to get work done.
