I'm saying that there are loads of people who keep saying that they don't need systemd because they have no need for the facilities it provides, and that maybe - just maybe - they might not be lying.
They may not desperately need systemd's facilities but they might actually appreciate them once they have them available.
This »We don't need this« attitude reminds me of some of the Windows administrators I encounter in the Linux workshops I teach. These often refuse to have anything to do with pipelines, regular expressions, etc. on the grounds that they »don't need this« on their Windows machines, so these features can be of no conceivable worth whatsoever. Some of them are of a sufficiently agile mind to see that using these facilities on Linux does in fact make some things easier, even to a point where they find they have less drudge work to do on Linux than on Windows, but others never quite seem to get it.
