Re: If Linux Is About Choice, Why Then ...

I can´t understand this Discussion, as Normal user I even had not known that there are
more than one Init System (SystemV) and I don´t think that this should be chooseable. The
Installation is complicated enough dont make it more complex by adding choices which no
one understands.

By the way I am using Linux since 20Years. For me personally there is no Problem in
Installing another Init after Installation Therefore I don´t think it is needed as long
everything is running fine. I am using systemd and beeing perfectly happy with it had only
to do with it one time as I configured on access scan with clamd what is  not the most
important thing too I think.

Please end this Diskussion and get on with important things.
