Damn Red Hat and L.P.
I prefer OpenRC over the extend and embrace systemd, but it seems I won't have the choice in a foreseeable future. Everyone in Linux will be forced to use systemd. The problem with systemd is not the init system itself, but the assimilation of other parts of the system.
At least I'll have the choice between Wayland, Mir and X11, like I can with video player (mplayer2, vlc etc) or browser (firefox, chromium etc).
I agree with this choice.
choice only matters until there is competition, systemd simply has none
Spotify also wants Debian to use systemd they have around 5000 physical servers running Debian systemd
i don't know if any of you know this but some debian developers are also systemd developer
