> so you want to encourage people to not upgrade to RHEL7??!?!
Absolutely not, just pointing out the obvious: it's not like RHEL7's release will represent a flag day for everyone using RHEL. Not for systemd, not for anything else.
Of course the RHEL7 documentation will cover systemd, but even the training material covering systemd for RHCSA and RHCE courses will likely come out a few months later (at least that was the case for RHEL6).
> I know people keep repeating how systemd doesn't force you to change, you can still use init scripts, but that's not how it's being used and setup in the distros using it so far.
I agree, and that's why a "RHEL7 without systemd" fork just cannot exist.
