    It would be nice if it switched to systemd.

    The only tangilble negative to me for systemd is the binary logging (I work in a team that writes monitoring systems that slurps up txt log files over the network).

    I did initially think about systemd vs Upstart, and though they achieve similar goals, they have vastly different designs which have pros and cons, depending on your needs.

    What I don't know is what are Debian's needs and which init system fits in better with those needs ?

    I think there will be systemd vs Upstart discussions focussing feature comparisions, without a thought to consider which would actually be the best fit for Debian.

    Cheers, Nick

    Yeah, object oriented startup scripts! Not.

    I once worked for Encore Computer in Marlborough, MA in a parrallel processing environment. One of the hardware engineers with software skills wrote a parallel initialization piece of software that booted up the system hardware similar to what systemd does today - and, it worked great!

    I agree with Nick about needs vs best fit to those needs, however.

    But I don't see any improvement due to systemd/upstart.

    HI Mrk,

    What criteria(s) are you using to measure improvement? Would it include speed of booting?

    I hope that does interfere with their self installer. I like debian files or packages, because it does not required terminal command and just by clicking on it and choosing install, it will install and finish.

    Anyone know if this switch might interfere with the way it installs today?
