    Default Ubuntu Plans For A Future With Upstart

    Phoronix: Ubuntu Plans For A Future With Upstart

    If you were hoping that Ubuntu 12.10 would mark the switch from Upstart to systemd for its init daemon, there was no surprise announcement and the Ubuntu developers are continuing to push for the advancement of Upstart...

    Staying away from that abomination called SystemD is a great call. Kudos to the Ubuntu developers.

    A good thing, if for no other reason than to prevent (or at least delay) systemd becoming a defacto standard.

    not sure which is more over-hyped... systemd or wayland.

    not sure who cares about your opinion.

    Default If it isn't broken,

    don't fix it. I prefer Upstart from a KISS standpoint. Also, monocultures are never a good thing. So kudos to Ubuntu.

    Default Not a bad decision

    because Upstart isn't really a problem. I'd rather Ubuntu focused their manpower on bigger issues, and leave their init system alone while it is in reasonable shape.

    I suspect they'll eventually need to move over to systemD but there's no reason to do so right now.

    Hopefully they don't walk away from the concept of having a service that does one thing well to a service that does everything poorly. The scope looks to be expanding a lot.
