Someone in IBM doesn't like systemd

IBMer thinks: "I don't like systemd. If I were in charge, I could close it down".

Pauses. Reaches for their Internal Memo pad (for this is IBM afterall), and sharpens their best, most impressive pencil.

Next thing we know it's giga-cheque books at dawn, and some gleeful looking IBM wonk is in charge of systemd.

Seriously though, this does mean that IBM will also control the CentOS project. Nothing particularly wrong with that in my view, IBM have been good friends to Linux over the decades, but it is a whole hunk of consolidation of a sort in the market.
