I don't that's it at all. The reason many people react to the SystemD spelling is becuase, for some years now, trolls use that spelling when harrassing others about systemd. Calling it SystemD indicates to many people that you're the kind of person show turns up from nowhere, and starts spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt about systemd, or presenting conspiracy theories about it, or making ad hominem attacks on its authors. People with bad experiences from previous systemd discussions will assume you're that kind of troll, regardless of the value of any of your claims or statements may have. Or at least I do. We've had systemd related discussions for years. Just about every real or imaginable problem with systemd has been raised. Even so, we chose it as the default init in Debian, while keeping support for other inits, and those railing against this are just not worth arguing with anymore. Those who report actionable issues in systemd, or in our support for other init systems, are welcome and should get all due attention. Bugs are bugs and bugs should be squashed. Everything in this mail is my personal opinion. It's possible other members of the community working on Debian have different opinions. -- I want to build worthwhile things that might last. --joeyh
