Opinions are fine. Dicussing them is fine too. What "some people" dislike is to be forced into one (instead of, for example, being convinced).

Because others might not share your opinion?
I won't go into the details of the discussion, they have been hashed out ad nauseam in other places.
I do appreciate Debian GNU/Linux because it goes to great lengths to enable multiple possibilities. As long as there are people willing to maintain other init systems, there should be other init systems. Your opinion is... your opinion, and is no better or worse than other people's opinion.
Trying to establish your opinion as The Truth (TM) isn't very helpful in a discussion. methinks.
