Probably not. The vast majority of Linux users don't care what init
system the OS uses as long as the computer boots to a login prompt. The
vast majority of Debian users don't care as long as their updates and
upgrades go smoothly.

Those who genuinely care are sysadmins like me who have to work with it,
and folks like Lennart Pottering and DJB who insist that their way is
not just the best way, it's the only way, and their sycophants.
