Practically, saying code it yourself, or use something else no longer applies. RedHat is kind of the Microsoft of the Linux world and Poettering is their employee. Though various niche distributions won't use it, it's become almost impossible to avoid, at least when using Linux commercially, especially after Debian and Ubuntu went over, to avoid. Yes, you could use Slack, or Gentoo, or a few others, but generally, in the US at least, people are going to expect RedHat/CentOS and/or Debian/Ubuntu.
