... not that Debian users should notice
As someone who's been using Debian since '93 I certainly understand that one sometimes gets a visceral negative reaction to change, but the incoherent backlash is getting pretty tiresome.
sysvinit was and is a heap of shit, which often works more by luck than judgment.
I admit, I never really considered this until someone came along and tried to build a better alternative. Namely Upstart, which I didn't like at all. Systemd didn't get a better reaction from me either, but the vast quantity of abuse piled on it eventually provoked me to take a long hard look at what I was clinging to and realise that rather than it being a lifebouy, it was actually a large floating turd.
Just because we've all been trained by bitter experience not to stray into the dodgy areas where it is most likely to break (or where you're no longer even being given the option to stray there because DDs are no longer willing to deal with the related bug reports) does not mean that it's good. Likewise, just because we've learned what is wrong when it breaks, does not mean that it's easy to fix.
Clearly, trying to replace this sort of software is a thankless task. I think the least that we owe those brave enough to take on the task is to not simply believe every single bad thing that anyone says about them and their software and their motives.
How about at least trying to concentrate long enough to decide whether we really actually care about any particular story?
For instance, Debian users might want to notice that Debian does not use systemd-resolved by default, so this story is of no real interest to them unless they've decided to use resolved.
If someone reacts to this and similar stories by quitting Debian, then that is one less person to care about the non-systemd inits that Debian still supports (systemd is only the _default_, after all -- and only on Linux). That's one less person noticing and reporting bugs if those alternatives start to rot. That's less pressure on developers to keep those alternatives viable.
So, if you care about choice, I suggest that you stick around, use Debian without systemd as the init, and report bugs when you notice them.
Running off elsewhere is not likely to keep other inits viable in Debian, and since Debian is one of the few major distros that still offers a choice of init, if that ceases to be true, the death of choice will be that much closer.
