Though I doubt my opinion will make any difference, I dearly wish that projects such as systemd and gnome would appreciate that their use of Linux-only features is indirectly harmful in a multitude of ways to the free software ecosystem as a whole. Or rather, forcing the use of Linux-only features, and deliberately excluding others, since it's perfectly possible to use platform-specific features while also remaining portable. It just requires a good attitude and a little effort. Unfortunately these seem to be missing entirely in certain quarters in recent years.
