"systemd versus sysv init most visibly leads to faster boot".
That was the original marketing. systemd of course is much much more than boot.
Systemd touches every part of the OS.
Upstart was bad. Systemd is worse. Both were born as boot/init systems and are unconstrained in scope.
Any program unconstrained in scope will grow into a monolithic mess.
Upstart was unnecessary in Ubuntu. Systemd is not necessary in Fedora or Debian.
There are other ways to get fast boots, without create another monolithic do-everything daemon with spaghetti dependencies.
Basic software engineering principles (and Unix principles), should tell you that do-everything daemons, like upstart, systemd, hald are bad ideas.
With such complex, unmodular core Linux systems, Linux based OS's will grow increasingly more unstable and insecure.
Also, systemd and upstart make Linux much less suitable for embedded systems.
The choices, I guess, are:
Fork the pre-systemd Debian.
Start fresh, perhaps even starting with the simple event based init system from the most popular Linux distribution in the world
why not give up on dbus, and just use binder, which is already supported in the kernel?
Personally, I _do not want_ this.
While, we are at it, I do not want do-everything daemons like upstart or systemd. These monolithic programs of undefined scope are poor examples of software engineering, and not needed.
But real engineers are working behind the scenes every day to make existing auto technologies more efficient.
Think of this as a building block to the future.
Did Ford marketing write this?
Real engineers...working behind the behind the scenes every day... creating building blocks of the future.
That could be my wordy, but non-informative job description.
Adding, some "Airplane",
Real engineers bust their buns every day creating building blocks of the future. You tell your old man that.
Perhaps the article was written in 2006?

Your comparison comparison is like comparing monkeys with the Eiffel tower.
If MIPS would sell a cubieboard sized SBC, as open as Beagle, Panda or Cubie (more open than the raspberry pi), sign me up.
Looking at the youtube video, that was probably the lousiest landing in the history of the airport. But there are some, particularly me, who would like to buy him a drink.

How would the Bible be colored?
Per book should be interesting.
Unless the machine is booted from CD or USB running another OS, then ctrl-alt-del can be captured as well.
Chromium is at least open source.

I know, crazy idea.
Every year, The Slashdot editors go on vacation at the beginning of April.
In place of news, scripts search the web for bad jokes, theonion articles or random text, and post them as news.
Most readers take the day off, and hope that by the evening, the editors are sacked and the site is returned to normal.
