This week’s TechMail is How does Ubuntu’s Upstart system initialization compare with runit? which looks at the upstart system vs runit. I really like runit; so much in fact that with Annvix I rewrote the entire init system to take as much advantage of runit as possible and as a result ended up with extremely fast boot-times (of course, the rewrite helped and I was able to remove a bunch of stuff that I didn’t need). Anyways, this is a comparison and while upstart sounds promising for the future, I can honestly say that I would take runit over it (as it is now) anyday.
