To be honest, my biggest thing against systemD is I have better things
to do with my time than learn it and deal with it's issues.  I didn't
like pusleaudio and saw no reason for it and it concerns me how much
feature creep systemD has.  I don't do IT work for a living anymore
and just want to make use of my systems the way I want that works for
me the best.  There are still many people using MacOS 9 on old PPC
hardware or Amigas, or pick your system.

 I used to support a business that ran a 30 year old DOS program.  I
gave the guy a dozen P3 Dells about 10 years ago and he paid me to
upgrade his old P2 stuff with them.  Then I upgraded his server from
NT4 SP6 to Win2k on a Dual 1.4Ghz P3 server.  It was a hell of a speed
boost for his network.  But he didn't connect anything to the internet
so his thing was why pay thousands to "upgrade" when the program he
bought did everything he needed.  Standardizing on a bunch of
identical Dells made my support easier for me.

Yep.  It amazes my how people will ignore what you asked to try to
convince you that you are wrong.

nice.  I have an 84 Olds Cutlass Supreme.  And a 455 Olds sitting on
the engine stand waiting to be rebuilt.  That's one of the things I
would rather spend my time on instead of learning something I don't
need to know.
