Not quite. One normally wants to get a job done _reasonably_ and 
_reliable_ within the possibilities of _available resources_.

Wrt. system bootup, this means, I don't care much on whether booting 
takes 40 or 80 seconds and don't care whether booting is parallelised, 
nor do I actually care about which init system is being used.

However, resource requirements, usability and reliabilty are a concern 
to me. That said, /me feels similarly to Gnome3, systemd still has a 
long way ahead to mature.
