Linus is the only one who can stop it from being merged into the kernel. I hope he stops it.

As for the rest, it may cause enough inconvenience in the mainstream distros that people will seek refuge with less popular distros, but ones that will shun systemd and its madness.

Looks like Ubuntu and Chrome are sticking with Upstart and even extending it. http://lwn.net/Articles/546963/ systemctl is just another thing I've gotten used to on Fedora. Its nowhere near as bad as NetworkManager which goes out of its way to interfere with your port configuration.

systemd is the 5th init system I've used. Upstart made a brief appearance in Fedora 9. Before that chkconfig, before that was /etc/inittab and way early was shell scripts rc.net, rc.local, etc.
systemd might be a little more complex but don't believe all of the bashing. Most of the criticisms are non-issues.

There is no reason for systemd, for the added complexity, and for features that are already there in different ways.
