I respect their efforts, wish them good luck and such, but seriously they are wasting their time and money.
I wonder what's everybody going to think/do when Debian Stretch (Jessie+1) comes out with systemd as an optional dependency.
Because that was the plan well before this debacle caught the eye of the good old "el Reg" commentards.
Due to schedule constrains Jessie was meant to come with systemd as a default, optional later on in 8.1/8.2 and definetively optional from the beginning in 9.0
But, who cares, where's the drama on that. Its like Networkmanager, once something has a bad rep who cares about the facts or like in the case of Pulseaudio, who cares if it ever improves.
And once again I'm no systemd devotee or anything, I think it is too ambitious and should be leaner, but I have spend quite a substantial amount of time with it and I can not see where are those terrible problems people is having with it, and much less those logs you can not made use syslog if you desire.
