"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?"

    Thank you. I don't care that it's 30 days old.

    I don't know anything about it, and quite frankly, I wish some people around here that understood it could compare and contrast Upstart and SystemD for me and possibly tell me why it was such a big deal in the first place.

    For there to be so much emotion, especially from techies, I know the pros and cons on either side must have been huge.

    So what were they?

    Technically, lunchtime is at any moment. It's just a wave function.
