Been trying to read about the status of Upstart in Debian.
Has anyone installed 0.6.3 in testing and also seen their boot time reduce by significant amount?
Is it stable?
Will it replace sysvinit in Squeeze for certain?
I'm reluctant to try it only because I've read some bug reports from people who installed it and couldn't switch back to sysvinit afterwards.
Suspend-to-RAM seems to be working reliably as long as you avoid any binary blobs.
That, like so many other sleep/suspend issues seems very dependent on the hardware as well. My desktops with blobs for example work fine with s2r. (Although I rarely use it anyways as the systems are usually crunching away at something). Where it could be of a lot of use though is again the portables.
