      I'm surprised that Canonical never started a project about a new Linux kernel ehm

        Minor miscapitalization, unless intended:

        'more than five years after mir began as"

          That would be redundant when they have already adopted systemd.

            You mean systemkerneld.

              Ubuntu adopted Systemd because Debian chose Systemd. Shuttleworth actually lobbied for Upstart, but honored Debians choice.
              Personally I quite like Systemd, although there is some getting used to with command names and all. But it seems much more robust and well designed than the shell-script mess it replaces.

              But everyone's choice to their own. There are plenty of other distros to choose from. No need to restart a new trollish flamewar on this subject.....

                Wow, I always thought Debian was the last main distro to adopt systemd.

                  Have you already forgotten about Canonical's romance with Microsoft? That's how the WSL (Linux kernel clone) was born.

                  In fact, the Windows Subsystem for Linux was made from the ashes of Project Astoria (Android emulator for Windows 10 Mobile), but Canonical still had a big impact on creating Bash for Windows.

                    There was a heated (and lengthy) debate, and Debian developers decided to go with systemd. Right choice IMHO.
