Developers aren't alone in hating it.

So, what is the replacement which will be less messy? Upstart? I am seriously thinking of installing upstart. initng(didn't follow much on latest) IIRC was another project. KISS is the ideology general users will like.

Quote:
Because systemd puts so many of a program's eggs in one system basket, systemd's critics argue that "there are tons of scenarios in which it can crash and bring down the whole system. But in addition, this means that plenty of non-kernel system upgrades will now require a reboot. Enjoy your new Windows 9 Linux system!
They go on to argue that systemd's journal files, which are stored in a binary format, are potentially corruptible. In addition, they find that systemd is incompatible with other members of the Unix operating system family. They also flaw it for its "monolithic, heavily desktop-oriented, design, which makes it a poor choice for many Linux use cases
Poettering has addressed these concerns many times since systemd appeared but the criticisms keep coming. What makes all this arguing over systemd especially odd is that, despite all this hate, it's been widely adopted. The GNOME 3.8 desktop and newer now requires systemd. Fedora, Red Hat's community Linux, was the first major distribution to start using it as a default. Since then, Debian Linux, openSUSE, and Ubuntu have all adopted systemd.
