Red Hat made these decisions and there is nothing CentOS can do about it.
If any change is to be made it will have to be at the request of paying Red Hat subscribers.
I think by centos he meant RHEL. I don't think we blame xentos for anything, the centos team deserve a nice big thank you for all of their work. Their job is to provide full compatibility with rhel and they do a damp good, whatever crazy decision rhel were to make, centos's job is still to make a free compatible version and they do it right.

From a desktop user perspective, gnome3 is big no-go for the moment...
I could not agree more. WTF were they thinking? Gnome2 is far superior, in every way, to Gnome3.

I too prefer the System V Init but that to a large extent is simply because I am more familiar with it.

I've been running Fedora 20 since its release and Fedora 18 before that since its release and so I have started to get use to SystemD.

With respect to GNOME 3 - I hate it. I really did prefer GNOME 2 - I think the GNOME developers are trying to make a tablet OS but for a server I don't really care, it's ssh all the way.

MariaDB doesn't concern me, I prefer PostgreSQL and for my code (webapps) I use PDO to abstract it anyway.

My biggest gripe is SystemD - it allegedly reduces boot time, but servers aren't booted often anyway so it is kind of moot there.

Linux + systemd = How to turn a Linux into a Windows 98

i host hundreds of linux servers and i never had so bad experience...
so any one know if there will be a fork without systemd to keep alive to good and the stable version of CentOS ?

Thank you.

unfortunantly not.
as KDE 4 teached us, sometimes you need to destroy all the goods and restart from the beginning to create something new.
