I'm sorry about that. Someone thought it would be funny to "borrow" my laptop and wreck havoc wherever I was logged in. (those responsible have been sacked)
It's funny you're concerned about unnecessary fragmentation, because that's exactly what systemd is all about! Consider this: We all worked together for years to develop a fully-featured system stack. It wasn't perfect, but it mostly worked. Then along came systemd with a new take on init systems (and one I like BTW). Fair enough. But then systemd started to grow like some kind of open source katamari ball, picking up system components left and right as it rolled through town. Suddenly the projects that we had been relying on, the software we helped write, were shells of their former selves. Key developers were missing. Contributors had disappeared. The community had been split. So don't tell me that systemd is about reducing fragmentation when one of its key design goals seems to be to screw over everyone not using systemd.
Yes, we can fork all the projects that systemd destroyed, but it's going to be a hell of a lot of work. Do you understand why we might be a little peeved about it? I know, sucks to be us, but try and think about the situation we're in before making your comments.
