Every other distro of merit has long since made the switch. We're just late to the party. Are you just figuring it out now? Ric

Just to be clear... you're saying that Slackware, Gentoo, and their derivatives are not "distros of merit?" Or, for that matter, BSD and illumos derivatives?

At least some of us see the move to systemd (and it's hairball of related code) as turning Debian from perhaps the premier distro, into something no longer "of merit."

Some parties are simply not worth attending (better never, than late, so to speak).

Just one man's opinion.
