Actually, the Arch Linux devs chose systemd and itís nearly impossible to use something else now. (Everything is possible but all official packages are made for systemd.)
I hope the systemd devs will stop breaking and changing things soon. Still haven't found how to make it not hang at shutdown if I don't manually unmount sshfs before.
I didn't mean that Arch Linux as project itself and it's devs chose systemd over something else I was talking about it's modular nature where users can choose what they want.And I'm getting worried how quickly people started to like systemd just because it has everything packaged in.
Sorry but this just isn't true. The "upgrade" to systemd rather broke many things. Please don't spread FUD.
What did it break for you Nucleon? Because I was on systemd from the moment it packaged in Arch's repos and never had any problems. When I got a new computer I downloaded the iso that happened to be the month before the move to systemd, when systemd hit i upgraded, and nothing broke. Everything kept on just as it had always.

Yes thatís what I understood, and Iím telling you, no, Arch Linux users donít get to choose their init system, unless theyíre good enough and have enough time to fight against the tide. The only supported init system in Arch is systemd.
