Unfortunately for me, the direction of Linux is a problem, I see no
future in continuing with Linux when it is possible to get the /right/
result for myself and my clients by moving away from Linux to, most
likely, a BSD flavour [FreeBSD is the most likely at this stage].

The writing is on the wall for Linux as far as I am concerned.  It's
not just Debian, even though Debian [in my world view at least] has
been a major driving force in the Linux world -- going with systemd
now and all that will follow due to this decision, it's not rosy, not
rosy at all.

Spending monies or time trying to change the situation will only delay
the inevitable and such monies and time would be wasted in my view.
