I have been doing some research, I have also managed to break and
restore a few systems trying to run them without systemd.  Possibly a
harder task than I thought it might be.  Possibly unnecessarily complex,
I don't know.
But here is a good source of background on part of the issue.

Save me the religious preaching, I am an atheist.  GWBjr, Trump,
Erdowan, and Putin were elected by slim majority of approved voters.
Stalin and Hitler ranked much higher in the meritocracy scale, nearly
unanimous decisions by their peers got them elected.  It must be that
Jimmy Hoffa was the only one that cheated to get elected.

Why don't you try ubuntu and tell us what it is like.  Do I strike you
like a person needing to hold hands with anyone?
