I'm sure we could live in a wonderful Utopia in which everything just
works and there are pink butterflies everywhere, but in the *real* world
(the same one where not every software update works first time),
repeatedly, people have pointed out that this is not the case.

Didn't we "decide" that Fedora was intended for more technical users? I
don't see many technical users crying out for a hammered shut init
system where they feel like they have to go to their auto mechanic to
attach the right magic dongle to fix it when it breaks.
