    The guy I'm quoting voted for systemd you troll. Of course it was during the init vote. When else would someone outside of Canonical be talking about an init system that they don't use?

    The upstart and libnih code bases are beautiful pieces of work. I was
    quite impressed by the code quality and documentation level, and more
    impressed by the extensive test suite. upstart and libnih follow the
    gold standard, commonly advocated but rarely met, of having around half
    of the code in the package be test cases. These are clearly code bases
    that have seen a great deal of love, care, and consistent development
    standards. The systemd code base also struck me as solid and at the
    standard that we would expect for a critical package, but the testing
    model is not as comprehensive or as integrated with the code, and it
    didn't impress me the same way that the upstart code did.

    The main reasons systemd was chosen over upstart involved having more features and being widely adopted in the rest of the open-source ecosystem. (sidenote: I'm glad systemd was adopted by Ubuntu since it saves them some effort and helps increase compatibility between distros)

    Are you kidding?

    Your source is the webpage of the founder of Canonical? You gotta be working in The New York Times or some other big newspaper in the world mate.

    Upstart is great

    Upstart is a great piece of software praised for its quality.

    However, Canonicals stubbornness in require contributor license agreements (CLA) has made Upstart unwanted for adoption by other distributions.

    So now all distributions are adopting systemd instead.

    Upstart was technically great, but Canonical killed it.

    You shouldn't have any guilty consciousness for using Adblock.
