I switched to systemd on Asus transformer tf101 (ARM 32-bit) about one
year ago without any problem, and that device is not officially
supported by Debian nor it is tested. And I've built hackish 3.1.10
kernel for it and I have a lot of problem with that device but none is
related to systemd.
So, saying that the systemd is problematic does not 'keeping the water'
IMHO. It has bugs for sure but is there any non simple software without
bugs. I suspect.
