I agree. For me, the thing which has always put me off above all other
things was the fact that systems running systemd often did not shut down
cleanly. Manageable if it's a laptop on your desk and you have access to
the on/off button and the power cord. Not so good if the box is a
business-critical server, housed in an unattended bunker 200 miles away,
and it's 03:00 in the morning. The risk's just too great.

Are there any stats for the takeup of Devuan (and/or the persistence of
old pre-systemd releases of other distros) in the server community? I
have been unable to find them. Would be very interesting.
