    So what does a userland vs kernelland fight bring to the table? Nothing. This is about mutual exclusive init systems where one is a complete whack crack piece of deadware and the other is not.

    Upstart is a piece of old dung that needs to go away. systemd is the messenger.

    You have to understand this:
    Upstart is modern, it works and it is well tested (does Systemd have a decent test suite now?).
    Ubuntu does not need to switch to Systemd right now.

    I do agree that having one standard init system everywhere would be great for many reasons. And Canonical would probably be happy to spend man power somewhere else than Upstart.
    I think they may reconsider this after 14.04.

    But such a change is not trivial. Especially with such a fast moving target as Systemd.

    Hopefully. systemd is much more user friendly and it's much easier to configure. It's also much more powerful, so I hope they'll switch.

    Oh the joy. Refering to Shuttleworths FUD is allways fun. Oh wait it is not. Because it is debunked. Go debunk yourself.

    Having 10000 projects doing the same thing is the hallmark of the past 20 years of *nix development. NIH syndrome is practically a requirement.
