Linux Over the past year I've been reading a lot of opinions on the new init technology, systemd. Some people think systemd is wonderful, the bee's knees. Others claim that systemd is broken by design. Some see systemd as a unifying force, a way to unite the majority of the Linux distributions. Others see systemd as a growing blob that is slowly becoming an overly large portion of the operating system. One thing that has surprised me a little is just how much people care about systemd, whether their opinion of the technology is good or bad. People in favour faithfully (and sometimes falsely) make wonderful claims about what systemd is and what it can supposedly do. Opponents claim systemd will divide the Linux community and drive many technical users to other operating systems. There is a lot of hype and surprisingly few people presenting facts.

I'm so happy that we have you to make decisions for every one else. Imagine if we had to study the issue, analyze the facts and make a decision on the merits or lack thereof ourselves! What a lot of effort and wasted time! Fortunately, we have you to do that for us so everyone else can get on with their lives and forget about the issue. It's truly kind and noble of you to sacrifice so much so that the rest of us can don't have to.
