The problem with this question is that it's the same loaded question
that was on the Debian TC ballot. Which is to say that System V init is
presented as irreparably broken, hating Canonical is an in thing for the
Debian community, OpenRC is BSD-style which Debian abandoned many years
ago, and that leaves systemd as the only viable choice on the list.

Personally, I don't see System V init as being irreparably broken. Or in
fact broken at all. And I don't see any of the alternatives as being
objectively better. They're better at some things but at the cost of
being worse at others.
