    Default Ubuntu Plans For A Future With Upstart

    Staying away from that abomination called SystemD is a great call. Kudos to the Ubuntu developers.

    A good thing, if for no other reason than to prevent (or at least delay) systemd becoming a defacto standard.

    Default launchd

    Why doesn't the distributions use launchd instead of systemd and Upstart?

    One reason: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Launchd...tside_Mac_OS_X
    Also why would they?
    They could also simply use BSD init.

    Yeah, depending on Apple to write your init system is the best idea ever.
