    I'll go right ahead and say that IMO this is stupid. Part of the whole point of systemd was to standardize on one common, halfway-decent way of doing things. So as soon as Debian adopts the standard... someone forks it to avoid the standard! Whee!

    I wouldn't call anyone stupid because they forked a distro... This happens all the time (from a large variety of reasons) and the passing of time will tell if the fork is successful or not.

    The people doing the fork are definitely not stupid. The idea of forking Debian, however, is (IMO) stupid. There is a difference. :p
