Wow, that really makes systemd detractors seem like lazy people with no interest in advancing their knowledge or skill set.
I don't think that's the case at all. I think, for a lot of people, they don't have the challanges that systemd solves.
Also, it challanges a lot of sacred cows that people hold dear to them. You see kind of a religeous attachment to certain ideas, that is tough to give up, even when presented with a system that provides a different model of working. Then you get this whole game of analogy making. Everyone hates X, so lets compare this thing I don't like to X. Even thought its obviously very different from X.
