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.

Place the blame of RedHat for actually trying to be constructive is plain wrong.

RedHat is not being constructive for the sake of it, it's being productive for its own sake. They've got a product to sell and they need to improve it for their paying users. Users of other distributions (including RedHat-based free ones) are an afterthought. That's not something "bad"; it's how a commercial company is supposed to act if it's to make any profits and stay in business.

My comment was not directed at you personally, and you know it.

Let me quote you again:

Again, you fail to explain what stops the million of oppressed anti-systemd developers and users from forking the latest non-systemd distribution and going on, on their separate way?

That comment was an attack, it was straightly directed at me (unless "you" means something else) and asked me to explain something I had not even said. That's what I call childish.
