    Phoronix: Debian May Be Leaning Towards Systemd Over Upstart

    While no official decision has been reached yet, it looks like Debian's technical committee may be leaning in favor of using systemd as the default init system over Upstart or other alternatives...

      If SystemD is chosen I hope it comes to Ubuntu too, even though I prefer
      Upstart over SystemD. But having only one distro support Upstart would
      fragment the community too much.

        Nice, I'm glad to hear that the technical committee are making technical choices. It seems that everyone is for systemd, except for those who were involved with Upstart themselves.

          So how are they going to make the non-linux ports of Debian work? Are they going to add a compatibility layer?

            I'm using Arch which migrated to Systemd back in 2012. I've been relatively happy with how it works although it does take some getting used to.

                i think various solutions is better than only one, it will be like xorg? it really suck, but no other solution so far, no competion , what somepeople calls fragmentation i call competion

                  I don't like systemd, but in systemd is more easy to enable and disable units(?), at least in ubuntu to disable the lightdm i have to edit some crappy Cannonical scripts.

                    Too bad... I had hoped for openrc. If the choice is between systemd and upstart, then systemd is definitely better.

                      You don't like systemd but you don't even know to use it?

                        Should be easier:
                        sudo systemctl enable lightdm
                        sudo systemctl disable lightdm

                            Damn Red Hat and L.P.
                            I prefer OpenRC over the extend and embrace systemd, but it seems I won't have the choice in a foreseeable future. Everyone in Linux will be forced to use systemd. The problem with systemd is not the init system itself, but the assimilation of other parts of the system.

                            At least I'll have the choice between Wayland, Mir and X11, like I can with video player (mplayer2, vlc etc) or browser (firefox, chromium etc).

                              Various solutions are better when there's no clear technical winner. Systemd is the clear technical winner.
