[ale] Why systemd vs sysvinit really doesn't matter to me

Makes perfect sense to me.? And to answer your question, nothing.? 
Systemd does nothing that can't be done by something else.? I am 
actually not a fan, but I can't hardly care enough to replace it.? There 
is a HUGE difference between technical people who do it for work and 
people who do it for work AND play, and it does not really matter what 
OS your technology you may be talking about. You can spot it a mile away 
at work.
