I have written some upstart scripts, but I'm by no means a guru. I don't really know anything about systemd yet except it seems to be linux-only (which is why the gentoo guys have OpenRC, right?), but upstart seems to be a pretty decent piece of software. That said, I do think Mark is waaay overreacting to that particular situation, and you're right, it isn't a single distro solution. He acts like upstart was a display server or something...
No announcement yet.
