"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?"

    We read his original announcements for systemd. He provided many explanations for its design, and they make sense.

    Also, it's not only him. It has contributions from several people.

    There might be valid reasons to dislike systemd, but "I don't like its creator" isn't one of them.
