Re: upstart, systemd, Canonical and Debian
Install it if you have a reason. It's a lot of work just to say you did it, but if nothing else fits your purpose then you can't beat a source-based distro.

That's perfectly fine. But if they make their decision based on false input, surely you can see how that would be bad?
A source-based distro, I can't see any good reason to specify any single init system. Or anything else for that matter.
