QED you among the others are claiming about nothing concrete, I ran debian on my servers
and desktops, switching to systemd did not caused a single issue.
I've read tons of posts like your, nothing concrete about systemd, just repeating over and
over again the same four silly things about phantom sys admin being stucked by ... what?

Furthermore, those who are stucked by filesystem check at startup are either noobs or completely ignorants 
which can't use tune2fs correctly.
