> Huh? I think nowadays upstart can be considered deprecated:
just because someone is doing an experiment doesn't mean other things
systemd has design issues which have to be hashed out obviously (Fedora
is punting on it for F14 for a reason)
upstart has license/contribution issues which are not pretty
MeeGo currently has a highly customized boot process, optimized for
speed. At this point, if we were to switch,
upstart matches that closer than systemd does.... so upstart would be a
more logical change if we were to change.
It's ok to have multiple competing technologies; that's one of the ways
innovation happens in open source.. competition.
