When you define a problem, you can also find a solution - simply saying "I
don't like it" is not a problem definition.

I've been using Debian with sysv-init, but only because systemd was causing
problems and I needed time to learn it. The concept of keeping systemd and
using init was a very good solution. I think I'll keep it on the server,
but for the desktop, I do not see a reason why you should not use systemd.

I guess you are also not driving a car from the 30ies.
