I'm sure it is. In my work, I don't particularly care about how long 
something takes to boot. I expect my machines to run for months between 
reboots; I had one that ran for more than four years, and only took it 
down because the UPS needed new batteries.

The old System V init mechanism works fine; why mess with it?

For that matter, Gnome 2 worked very well, and they went and broke it; 
supposedly, Gnome 3 is better adapted to tablets and smartphones, but who 
runs Debian or Red Hat on any of those?

Ok, I'm an old fuddy-duddy; I'd rather pound a Morse code key than use my 
phone for text messages.
