I did obligatory 'apt-get upgrade; apt-get dist-upgrade' at least 5
times so far (jessie→stretch). Different architectures, different
purposes. There was no systemd on those before the upgrade, and there
is no systemd after it.
But, I don't use GNOME and do not force it on users. Using GNOME may be
considered a cruel and unusual punishment in some countries, I don't
And I prefer to keep hplip on a printserver, 'cause I see no reason to
install the thing on a desktops multiple times. Same thing with cups.
If apt insists on installing unwanted packages into your system - I can
only suggest you to consider learning the way apt works.
