> Portability is a technical merit, IMNSHO. Lennart is in the minority when it comes to his dismissal of the value of POSIX, and portability in general.

An old debate between Tanenbaum and Linus Torvalds comes to mind :)

At the end of the day, Linux got ported, because people did the work. Now it runs on most anything. If the Debian KFreeBSD guys want systemd ported, they can do the work. They might prefer something else though.

> For all the people confused as to why even those who agree that systemd is technically superior are reticent to adopt it

Actually, systemd has wide adoption, just like git. Debian would be the hold-out if it doesn't adopt systemd, but either way, due to its technical features and those who appreciate what it provides, it shall continue to be packaged in Debian, just like every other init out there that has enough supporters who appreciate that particular init.

> million+1 features .. the cost of switching and being locked into systemd

Hand waving; as others have said eloquently, put up or shut up.
