The problem is Wayland isn't even close to being feature-compatible, yet it gets shoved out as a replacement, and any complaint that it is missing something gets a hostile response of "well, no one uses taht anyway". Really??? So if *I'M* asking for some function to be in place, something that existed in X11, that means the Wayland-fanboys imply that *I'M* nobody. SystemD merely tries to do tto much. It's trying to be the entire OS in itself, rather than a minimal, specific-purpose service to load other services. And in shoehorning itself into every corner of your system, it breaks cross-platform support (when projects like GTK or Gnome build in SystemD dependencies, it means those become BROKEN everyplace else). It's doing TOO much, too many things it shouldn't be touching. It's the difference between "do one thing and do it well" vs "jack of all trades, master of NONE".
