Quoting Andrew McGlashan (andrew.mcglashan(a)affinityvision.com.au):
I understand that systemd is a done deal for most and
many know my position.
But.... this "Open Letter to Linux" back from August 2014, really hits
the spot in so many ways; I could not have put it better.
I'm happily using Devuan these days as a replacement myself.
I find Rob Landley's comment in that thread to be the one that nails it:
Cheers, "It's easier to act your way into a new way of thinking
Rick Moen than think your way into a new way of acting."
