I fear that once systemd is firmly entrenched in Debian as the

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

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.

Thank $DEITY$.

By the way, the list provided is about 90% of the total usage in servers and desktops. Include Ubuntu and it's flavors as well. :/ Ric
