the biggest complaint about openrc is that its not in stable - go figure.

one feature of systemd is, that it has an active upstream. 

no, i dont think it would be a good idea to switch to systemd, just yet. 
but like the original baselayout was breaking new ground back when it 
first was developed, so is systemd. it does things differently and may not 
have all features yet, but from the outset it appears to be vastly 
superior to sysv-style inits, upstart and openrc.

granted, systemd is currently able to attract enthusiastic supporters. 
reducing these to mere fanboys, however, is ignoring the technical 
solution that systemd proposes. yes, openrc works great - and yes, systemd 
is a better solution when looking at the overall problem.

given how long, so far, it has taken openrc to reach stable, it is no 
wonder people start lobbying for systemd today. ;-)

kind regards
Thilo
