The problem is not change per se. Us "old fogeys" have successfully administered and programmed numerous radically different operating systems. We love to learn new techniques.
But good change is good and bad change is bad. And purporting to refute a stack of straw myths doesn't make a bad change any better.
The problem with systemd is that it is politically monolithic and controlling and therefore harmful to FLOSS progress. Stick it in a DSL router and sell a billion units - no problem. Stick it in the main branch and throttle Linux progress - big problem.
