I hate politics

I really hate politics. systemd is the best thing that has appeared in the linux world since a long time. It removes a lot of the fragmentation in Linux.
It also makes distributions real linux distributions. By that, I mean "a set of programs with branding, choice of graphical programs, etc..".
Sadly, it is being rejected because of silly reasons.
Since ArchLinux moved to systemd, everything has been better. It is soooooo much easier to operate, understand and manage the sysvinit.
Systemd also brings back the KISS philosophy into Linux because it means that downsteam does not have to rewrite the wheel and can stick to what upstream wants. Many upstream applications now ship systemd units.
