    Phoronix: While The Future Looks Towards Systemd, Upstart 1.13 Released

    While Ubuntu Linux looks towards switching to systemd in the next year or two, a new version of Upstart has been released with Ubuntu still being dependent upon init daemon software...

    They will switch the day after Debian will complete the port, in order to be useless to the community as usual. No doubt.

      The popup ads on this site are completely out of control.

      The ads bring my browser to its knees.

        Adblock plus, anyone? And pay a yearly subscribtion if you want to sleep well after that.

          You shouldn't have any guilty consciousness for using Adblock.

            Upstart is great

            Upstart is a great piece of software praised for its quality.

            However, Canonicals stubbornness in require contributor license agreements (CLA) has made Upstart unwanted for adoption by other distributions.

            So now all distributions are adopting systemd instead.

            Upstart was technically great, but Canonical killed it.

                    Are you kidding?

                    Your source is the webpage of the founder of Canonical? You gotta be working in The New York Times or some other big newspaper in the world mate.

                      Debian developers themselves? (which are not affiliated with Ubuntu or Upstart in any way)

                      The upstart and libnih code bases are beautiful pieces of work. I was
                      quite impressed by the code quality and documentation level, and more
                      impressed by the extensive test suite. upstart and libnih follow the
                      gold standard, commonly advocated but rarely met, of having around half
                      of the code in the package be test cases. These are clearly code bases
                      that have seen a great deal of love, care, and consistent development
                      standards. The systemd code base also struck me as solid and at the
                      standard that we would expect for a critical package, but the testing
                      model is not as comprehensive or as integrated with the code, and it
                      didn't impress me the same way that the upstart code did.

                      The main reasons systemd was chosen over upstart involved having more features and being widely adopted in the rest of the open-source ecosystem. (sidenote: I'm glad systemd was adopted by Ubuntu since it saves them some effort and helps increase compatibility between distros)

                        Thing you quoted was written during their ~voting~ for init system.
                        It is as objective as propaganda during president elections.

                          The guy I'm quoting voted for systemd you troll. Of course it was during the init vote. When else would someone outside of Canonical be talking about an init system that they don't use?
