          Switch to something different and you won't have "the trouble" in the first place. Grass is always greener on the other side, isn't it?

            RHEL use Upstart.

            Its mean that Upstart WORKS.

            Changing solution that works to solution that (will shortly) work... What is the gain?

            (And aren't Canonical a bit bussy now with changing Display Server???)

              if upstart is so good how come half this shit is using systemv ???

              and then you have GUI and terminal tools that work well for the systemv services but don't work for upstart


              it's a mess, everything needs to be systemd and with nice GUI version of sysv-rc-conf.

              that's the most basic shit ever and it pains me the way things are now with files for sysv and files for upstart and if someone just wants to do some basic shit like turn off CUPS and bluetooth and canonical mumbo jumbo you have to edit a bunch of files

                May be so on your distribution, isn't on mine, and it doesn't even use systemd. But when you are so pissed off by that, why don't you just change your distribution? Would be the logical step, don't you think?
