I only used systemd for a very short time, when I installed Armbian on a board I got to move away from the x86 disaster. Well it was less than a month later before a systemd bug was causing problems (some daemons wouldn't start). Armbian didn't address the bug and simply waited for their upstream (Ubuntu) to take care of it. Apparently those guys didn't care about fixing it quickly because allegedly it only affected ARM systems. So I immediately installed Devuan, and that was the end of all that. I never even looked back to see if they finally fixed the bug.
Anyway my other computers were all running OpenBSD, long before systemd even existed. I would have used it here except they don't have good 32-bit ARM support. NetBSD runs okay, but video has no acceleration whatsoever, so Firefox is laggy to the point of 1-2 second delays between hitting arrow key or clicking mouse and it actually doing the action. Which is strange because I also tried some emulators (NES and Amiga) that work pretty damn good with the exact same Xorg driver.
