Just because other people make a mistake is no excuse for another
person making it. (The argument, of course, is over whether systemd
_is_ a mistake. My current opinion is that it is; while this is based
on second-hand information only, unless the second-hand information
turns out to be outright lies I am unlikely to change my mind.)
As for everyone who disliked systemd already having bailed, see Devuan.

Just because X is better than Y doesn't mean that Z isn't worse yet.
(Here, X is BSD /etc/rc, Y is SysV-style rc scripts, and Z is systemd.
All in suitable people's opinions, of course.)

"servers" != "the WWW". Not by a long shot.

So are Linux and BSD, right up until you start caring about the _legal_
definition of UNIX, which is why they call themselves as "based on
UNIX" or "UNIX-like" or the like. But (IMO, of course) the legal sense
is the only one in which they aren't UNIX.

The BSDs just sit there and work, for the most part. The major thing I
see them lacking is a PR department.
