The majority of users don't give 2 figs whether their distro has systemd or not. All they want is a functional OS that does what they want it to do.

Quite honestly, the rage for or against systemd has been rather humorous to watch. It all boils down to whether things work as designed. For those few who hate the thought of systemd, there will be choices. For most, they don't care.

It reminds me of the brouhaha over pulseaudio. Which, by the way, works pretty well by now. And, it remains optional.

While I may not like the systemd design, I agree in that we need something better for init and process supervision. For example, I closed the lid of my laptop once, but I didnt realize the power manager daemon was dead. As a result, my laptop didnt hibernate and it almost melts. With proper process supervision, that wouldnt happen. I use runit now for managing services, and if the power manager dies, runit will restart it.
