After running Novell ZENworks for a fair few years here, Novell certainly haven't needed MS/Attachmate to do any sabotaging for them....

It's no longer about facts or original agenda but rather just propaganda and hate. Now I don't know much about Novell and can't really speak for it.

The fact that he wrote a lot of Netware probably explains why it sucked so bad.
On Fedora and Arch
Not sure about the openSUSE emplimentation, but systemd has worked pretty much flawlessly for me on Fedora, and hasn't given me much to complain about on Arch. The only issues I've run into are systemctl reboot seems a little wonky in Arch, and I've been having trouble getting filesystem mounts to work correctly on one system. However, on that system, I'm trying to mount two LUNs from a Drobo, and then combine them with AuFS, so it's not exactly a standard setup.
I think pretty much all the problems OpenSuse has with systemd are caused by either not knowing what they are doing with it, or because they want to make Red Hat look bad on behalf of SUSE, which is a Microsoft Gold Partner.
