I am serious. List the major distros _not_ adopting systemd.

There's, er, well, er, there's Slackware, and, um, PCLinuxOS,
TinyCore, Slitaz...

Seriously. Only tiny niche players are not going systemd.


Red Hat, Debian, SUSE, Ubuntu. Anyone with user bases in the 6-7
digits is using systemd.

I am hearing a lot of FUD. It's not monolithic, it can log to anything
you want, etc.

Its creator debunked a lot of the FUD but nobody cares.


I think it's a good thing. If it gets people to move to *BSD, great.
That's more life in the *BSD communities, it's more investment, more
development, etc. If it causes more diversity, I am all for it. If
something that makes my computer boot faster improves OS diversity,
double win!

I don't interact with init systems directly. Haven't done since the
1980s. I never understood the baroque nightmare of the SysV init. BSD
init I could work with.

Now it's all gone? Suits me fine.
