Considering the past conflicts on the topic of systemd, it should be

Barely noticeable:


This graph only shows that systemd users tend to install popcon package
too. I don't think you can rely on this statistics to argue that
sysvinit is no longer used by users.

No. It shows that, two years ago, over 18,000 machines that were reporting to the popcon servers had sysvinit-core installed and now less than a third of that number do. It certainly does not "only show that systemd users tend to install popcon" - unless those 12,000 machines have stopped existing or been prevented from submitting data to popcon for some other reason, one can infer that they are no longer running sysvinit. You can verify this yourself simply by looking at <https://qa.debian.org/popcon-graph.php?packages=sysvinit-core&show_installed=on&want_legend=on&want_ticks=on&from_date=2014-01-01&to_date=&hlght_date=&date_fmt=%25Y-%25m&beenhere=1>.

(Whether those machines submitting popcon data are reprentative of the wider installed based is a different discussion.)
