Re: upstart, systemd, Canonical and Debian
I think there's a lot to the argument. Systemd might become good enough in the future but I don't think it is now. The single point of failure argument is huge IMO, and the complexity of systemd and all its so-called optional components that somehow always need to be loaded anyway.
Linux is built on the premise that an app does exactly one thing, and does it really well. Systemd is slowly taking over the entire system. This is not good, it's not faster and it's not better.
