I chose sysvinit, but also use both daenontools,and more recently supervisord, for certain process supervision tasks.

I said systemd, that's what I use on my laptop and my phone.

The servers and desktops at work are still sysvinit for the moment.

Actually, I will settle with anything but systemd.

Reason for that are partly because of technical reasons and partly because of the really bad attitude of Lennart Poettering towards other people and projects.

I’m considering leaving or packaging a homegrown init system + set of scripts myself since systemd was decided on.

I use sysvinit since it does the job for me. systemd may have advantages for certain platforms, but I see none for my usage pattern so I see no need to change it.

I find it surprising that nearly one third of the users has already switched to systemd! I would have thought that this site's audience was mostly conservative server admins, missing the good ol' times... :-)

Systemd will mark the resurgence of the BSD.
