Ok, so let's quantify the view of sysadmins somehow. This can actually
be done in a meaningful way: let's count posts on places where
technically-minded folks gather. There's plenty of minor blogs that are
biased, but let's choose big sites where we can have a reasonable chance
of being unbiased. I chose Slashdot and it's fork, SoylentNews.
Counting only posts above the default threshold for a non-logged-in user:
(article about "Poettering's vision")
unrelated/no clear opinion: 3
anti-systemd in particular: 8
pro: 0 !!!
(article about systemd)
unrelated/no opinion: 12
(article about systemd-caused schism)
unrelated/no opinion: 33
