“systematize” vs. “systemize”

Merriam-Webster defines “systemize” as an alternate spelling of “systematize.” Is there any reason to choose one over the the other (besides “systematize” sounding a little weird to my ears)?

I did notice that the spell checker in my browser is marking “systemize” as incorrect, though Word says it’s fine (U.S. English).

Answer

I think “systemize” is uncommon enough to lead you to prefer “systematize” — and “just sounds weird” is often a good enough reason all by itself.
