My favorite line in the whole thing...
(upstart came first, Red Hat adopted it, then systemd came along claiming that there were technical issues with upstart. So this is almost an exact mirror, with the shoe on the other foot.)
For the anti-BSD trolls:
This is the first display server I know of to be licensed as (L)GPL3. I doubt it will be popular anywhere outside Linux (there, did I irritate anyone yet?) and Hurd.
...Meanwhile, I'm sticking with X11, and sysvinit (well, and bb init!).
Used FreeBSD quite a bit in the early part of 2000 - 2002 and it was real nice NVidia drivers ran on it.
Linux distro's will probably go whole heartedly into Wayland. Remonescent of how Xfree86 got sidelined.
