Systemd does have some things I like, but over all, I dislike it. But what I mostly meant is that it sucks that it's treated like that. For example, I can't use snapd on my system, because it depends on systemd, and I use openrc currently.
More and more, software is trying to force users to adopt systemd. That disgusts me to no end.
@BryanLunduke I've made this SAME point countless times.
It's software, not Sacrament.
Programs, not Priesthood.
It's interesting just how myopic we can become over the most mundane things. It's almost like we're hardwired for ignorance. All the while, pointing at others and proclaiming their apparent ignorance. Sigh.
