I don't dispute that.

Of course systemd gained
a bad reputation. That we still talk of the disaster that was the release of
KDE4 is indicative of how the negatives stay with us even when the problems
been overcome.

I was one of the people who pushed to have KDE3 in 11.1 instead of
dropping it since KDE4 was in such sad shape back then. I haven't
been very active(life kinda gets in the way - kids, overtime, bills,
etc) and don't really do much computer work professionally anymore.

It's not that I'm against systemd(and I wasn't against KDE4 - I just
didn't see any advantage in it and still don't for myself at any
rate). I'm just not sure why the devs are so hell bent on swallowing
up everything(as I noted in my reply to Richard) and taking away

Heck, I wish I could run firefox decently on my old
laptop(P3/1.2Ghz/1GB RAM). I'm typing on a Core2 laptop now with 3GB
RAM that's 10 years old. Still does everything I need it to do, even
with current software. Why not upgrade? Well, I'm using the last 4x3
Thinkpad they made(T60p - 1600x1200). Shoot, I still use a
slider/keyboard phone that's 4 years old but still LTE(and I have
spares since they don't make them anymore).
