    Default Canonical Releases Upstart 1.6

    Phoronix: Canonical Releases Upstart 1.6

    While most Linux distributions have moved on to using systemd as their init daemon replacement, Canonical is still investing in their Upstart init daemon for Ubuntu. Upstart 1.6 has now been released and it presents several new features...

    Default Wow

    Wow. Just wow. So few features for 8 months of development. Canonical is seriously misguided if they believe this is the future common init system for linux. Kill it.

    No, burn it. I'll supply the gasoline and dance on its grave.

    upstart isn't that bad, but I do wish they'd switch to systemd. Having the same init system across the major distros would be nice, and systemd does have some nice advantages. In addition systemd + the latest upower lets you use systemd for suspend/hibernate instead of the unmaintained and buggy pm-utils, and gives you logind instead of the unmaintained consolekit.

    Maybe they are waiting until after the next lts before making such a big change?

    Hopefully. systemd is much more user friendly and it's much easier to configure. It's also much more powerful, so I hope they'll switch.

    What feature do you miss in Upstart?
    It "just works" and sysadmins I know are quite happy about it.

    You wouldn't believe for how many people System V "just works" and are quite happy about it.

    Systemd -despite the udev things that happened lately- seems like a much healthier project with many people behind it. Canonical should change IMO. No point in having 10000 projects doing the same thing.
