Interesting.  It would seem that from several of the comments that the "unknowness" (is that a real word?) of systemd (lack of documentation and logging) creates much of the concern.  Linux people like to (at least think they) know what's going on with their OS.  There are others (perhaps like me) who, at least to a certain point, are accepting of what the distro developers roll out.  But who am I to "pick a side" since I live in a blended house: a ClearOS server, a Windows Home Server, several Windows 8.x desktops, a Vector desktop, a WinXP desktop, a few Android tablets, an Android phone, an iPhone, and several iPods.

"We fear the unknown."  "Rather the devil you know, than the one you don't." I'm sure there are more old sayings that could be applied.

I think it is good that there is spirited discussion about big changes like these. It helps things get sorted out. And I believe that things will get sorted out. Looking back at some the things I used to worry about:
- Windows registry as a single point of failure causing widespread chaos: Nope, it seems to be resilient enough.
- W2K raw sockets overwhelming the Internet: Never heard about it being exploited.
- Pulseaudio hogging resources and dragging down my system: Nah, it works well and gives me access to more features of my sound system.
- KDE4: It took years, but now it is good. And there were plenty of alternatives all along.
