"A very public and sometimes acrimonious dispute in the Debian ecosystem about upstart versus systemd has been settled in favour of systemd. Some go as far as to brand it a new era after the Linux civil war [Beware popups].

We also had an asksoylentnews question on what the fuzz was all about. But what can upstart contribute to systemd now the war is over, or will it simply be a technology that we remember fondly, but do not see any more in a few years time?"

    So, it looks like it is not going to be part of the upcoming LTS version. So I can postpone dealing with it for another 2 years.

    I've actually never understood the details of Upstart either. I have a headless 12.04LTS server in the closet that usually fails to boot properly after a power outage, apparently due to some dependency issue with the usb-mounted HDDs. Fortunately, outages are rare over here.

    At first I was skeptical about systemd but then I used it on Archlinux and I must say it's pretty sweet.
