I don't understand why you are getting downvoted.

The absorption of udev and basically forced dependency on systemd from important desktop environment projects also controlled by RH is a very real reason why this happened.




Nothing prevented people from forking udev if they didn't want to take systemd.



Forks and alternative /dev managers have to contend with GregKH and Sievers though...

Thanks for the great read. mdev is indeed nice alternative to udev monstruosity. It is somewhat supported in Gentoo https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mdev
