    Default Ubuntu Systemd Plans: Will Be Default By Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    Phoronix: Ubuntu Systemd Plans: Will Be Default By Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    Now that Ubuntu has pledged support to systemd moving forward in place of their in-house Upstart project, developers are starting to figure out the systemd migration path...

    Default Nice to see Ubuntu moving things forward

    Had to chuckle a bit watching Steve Langasek discussing systemd after he had voted against it as the next Debian init. No matter what the purists say, systemd turned out to be the better init system; Upstart had potential, but development stagnated and major issues were never dealt with. Anyone know when systemd will be introduced as the default init in Ubuntu? The sooner they rip out Upstart code, the better; they can focus more on Mir and other technologies that could make Ubuntu an even better distro than it already is.

    The link to the session notes points back to the Phoronix article.

    With this and the Mir story, I guess 16.04 is the new Ubuntu pie in the sky? The date they put on anything they don't know when they can have finished?

    This is "by", Mir is "in".

    Wow, this is in two years. Is it really going to take this long to migrate? I'd say a few months should be enough to get it done. And they basically have most of the work already done in Fedora and other systemd distributions.

    Again, "by" means "at the time between now and the date mentioned", so if things go extremely well it could even be in 14.10.

    They're waiting for Debian to do the job, so that they can copy/paste it

    All it really means is "It's not going to be in 14.04". 16.04 is the next LTS release, so that's the next "important" release. They're not overly concerned about what goes into the interim releases.

    Will SystemD on Ubuntu increase the boot time?

    I know Lenovo has resorted to using an UpStart like system where process loading is delayed until booted. Anybody know if SystemD will result in longer boot times on Ubuntu 16.04?
