i don't have any figures/proof but i think systemd is gaining quite a
bit of populatiry on the embedded linux market -- where space and
minimalist is king -- at least ii feel like i've read that a few times
recently :-)

i'm pretty sure i've read posts to systemd-devel by the
http://profusion.mobi/ guys, and some longer blogs too.  also in my
own endeavors with my Sheevaplug and Pandaboard i've run across a
number of people who were using it with great results (as am i :-)

probably beating a dead horse here, bu IMO it's just blatantly
superior all ways imaginable ... this becomes increasingly obvious the
longer you work with it (check out user-sessions! yay!).
