Thanks for at least being honest.
"Because I, personally, was not consulted about this change, I'm outraged on the internet and will wage a holy war of FUD."
You do get that the FOSS community is in its very essence about consultation? That consultation and cooperation are the only fucking way this whole fucking open source thing is going to work?
Yes, people get shirty when their input is ignored. No, it is not fucking FUD when we say, 'You have no right to ignore the complaints of roughly half of everyone who actually gives a shit about this topic.' It is not FUD when people highlight at length and in detail the many, many ways that systemd's design sucks.
Maybe systemd will get better. Most software does. But until its developers grow up enough to actually argue the thing on its merits and not simply to dismiss every criticism as aversion to change, it's going to face strident opposition.
