openSUSE switched, several releases ago, to systemd. If you are using
openSUSE, you have no choice in the matter: we all use systemd and there
is no alternative (or yes: roll your own distro, or switch to a
different distro).

There have been tons of discussions about this in the openSUSE mail
lists and forums, over several years.

I don’t see this as a an application question, perhaps the thread should
be moved to chit-chat.
