dnf even allows to uninstall RPM and systemd without warnings

that is a joke - DNF even allows to remove libraries
with recursive dependencies uninstall the complete
operating system not only the running kernel

nobody can seriously argue that this is a acceptable behavior
to replace yum and "the developers decided so" shows once
more that recent Fedora decisions are selfish and only
pretend to care about users while not care

frankly even a packaging error or a unexpierienced user
tryies to solve dependency problems easily leads to
a destroyed system that way
