I'm not gonna waste time rehashing why I don't want systemD.  Went
through something similar when KDE4 came out and was told to get with
the programs and "upgrade".  A new version is usually not an upgrade.

Yep and other people don't see why we don't use KDE5 or GNOME3 instead
of mate/cinnamon.

Nope.  I have 2 from the 80s though.  Would have no problem with a car
that old.  I might spent a bit more in gas, but my paid off vehicles
don't have a monthly payment & the insurance is cheaper.  Always trade

Kinda like my almost 15 year old Thinkpad T60p.  Does what I need and
has the 4x3 screen that makes it easier for me to get stuff done.
