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.
