[Discuss] Debian officially forked over systemd

The base code is poorly written. For example, Lennart's code had 
incorrectly handled buffer over-runs and under-runs that lead to 
distorted playback and kernel panics.

It's incompatible with some older software. The incompatibilities lead 
to PulseAudio becoming unstable while running which in turn can cause 
the kernel to panic.

Lennart then blamed Canonical for not doing their homework when 
integrating PulseAudio in Ubuntu 8.whatever. He then stopped working on 
PulseAudio to work on systemd instead.

systemd broke my Samba startup. That's not philosophical. That's not an 
attack against Lennart. That's a concrete example of systemd failing to 
perform it's primary function: starting system daemons.
