Linux is the kernel. Systemd is one of many initialization tools available for Linux based systems. Enough Linux users want it that it is the default in many Linux distributions but it isn't required.

I enjoy the ease of booting up a Linux kernel using busybox and simple shell scripts to get a small dedicated device going. It can be reminicent of old DOS systems.

When criticizing systemd, I think the criticism should be directed at the distributions forcing its use. Linux doesn't have much to do with it.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.?
