"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?"

    What you have to remember, is that systemd was not built for you. It was built for big business, big government, big data centers, where things have to get booted much faster than previously. We are but crash test dummies in this grand scheme.

    But doesn't this imply servers where for all intents and purposes, almost all the parallel boot stuff is useless (like starting an app before the database for example)?

    Personally I think Symtemd will go down as being a huge mistake. On my own machines I'm running Gentoo with no Gnome, Systemd or anything that requires either.

    I think the whole f****** mess is cure for which there is no known disease. Don't ever get me started...the whole topic just pisses me off WAY too much and life is just too short.
