init system preference, feels to me like an metaphor for technological
preferences. So I would write "technological preferences for example
init systems" or just "technological preferences". But I also have to
say that "init systems" alone was totally clear to me, at least if it
meant technological preferences.

If you are very enthusiastic about a thing, the best way to meet to
people who hate it, is to post in a public channel, forum or
mailinglist. That is something we all have to live with and is also
stated in:
