This I disagree with.

It has problems, yes. But it's been able to boot billions of machines
for several decades. That can't mean it's not good. Things that aren't
good can't manage to do such things.

There are problems with systemd too, and they're not limited to "the
developers are obnoxious".

Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy requires you
to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once, add a voucher, and
save on postage.
