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-poettering:            10
anti-systemd in particular:  8
ambivalent:                  1
pro:                         0 !!!

(article about systemd)

unrelated/no opinion: 12
pro:                   1
anti:                 15

(article about systemd-caused schism)

unrelated/no opinion: 33
pro:                   2
anti:                 22
ambivalent:            4
