    Default Debian May Be Leaning Towards Systemd Over Upstart

    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.

    Thumbs up

    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.
