Depends on what you mean by "distros of merit."

Last time I checked -- two or three weeks ago -- only 6 distros
besides Jessie were using systemd as the default: Fedora 15,
RHEL 7, CentOS 7, Arch, OpenSUSE, and SUSE Server.  Just read today
OpenMandriva uses it. Probably Mandriva, too.  Haven't checked. So, 9
total including Jessie. In any case, not a long list.

I've also just read of a systemd-less fork of Jessie/Debian.  Debuan, I
think it's called.

So, it's started.
