Basically, his arguments are :
* systemd haters have no clue about UNIX
* RedHat took a long time to notice my genius
* Gentoo users are old-farts that don't like beautifully written shiny new stuff
* Debian users are even older assholes
* You can use Gnome without systemd, but it won't work
* I listen to users, but they're all idiots
