Ian Jackson's general resolution to prevent init system coupling has failed to pass, the majority vote deciding that the resolution is unnecessary. This means that not only will Debian's default init be systemd, but packages will not be required to support other init systems. Presumably, this means that using other init systems on Debian (without using systemd as a base) will not be possible without major workarounds, or possibly at all. It also leaves the future of Debian projects such as kFreeBSD unclear, as systemd is linux specific.

The winners are:
Option 4 "General Resolution is not required"
Notice how they're both very vocal and all over the place? It's probably because they're the same people...
Yes, Debian did a bad decision and yes, there might be a conspiracy behind systemd and the Debian vote.
But it's disgusting to see the BSD crowd trying to turn this into a marketing campaign.
KINDLY CUT THE SHIT THANK YOU
I think they have the exact same thing to say about systemd...
