As previously mentioned 
the Fedora developers have recently returned to using Upstart, which is 
used in the current and several previous versions of Fedora, having 
removed Systemd which was introduced in April and used in the alpha 
version as the alternative to SysV-Init and Upstart. Everything 
currently points towards Systemd being chosen for system start-up in 
Fedora 15, which is expected next April or May.
