It's all about this. All this systemd & related hassle has only one goal, create some kind of (RH) monpoly starting from the linux world - and make the foss developers work, in the end, for free for the profits of RH (very similar to how Mac OS started from BSD).
So, i wouldn't say, it's a *WRON* attitude. Rather, it is a *LOGICAL* attitude of a profit oriented company trying to transform as much as possible of the foss efforts to their private profits. All FOSS oriented linux distros should have abbandoned gnome since a long time (like slackware e.g. did). In the end, the RH bullies probably will be successful, it's sad but it's working that way. The confort is: When it comes to compare closed systems, windows or macos are far superior to gnome. In the linux world the desktop environment probably is the minor important part, compared to server installations and i doubt that systemd is an improvement for server setups. Ok, i finish here ... Sorry.
