systemd will be much much more once it is done.

 From http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/systemd.html :

A central part of a system that starts up and maintains services should 
be process babysitting: it should watch services. Restart them if they 
shut down. If they crash it should collect information about them, and 
keep it around for the administrator, and cross-link that information 
with what is available from crash dump systems such as abrt, and in 
logging systems like syslog or the audit system.



All the features listed above are already implemented. Right now systemd 
can already be used as a drop-in replacement for Upstart and sysvinit 
(at least as long as there aren't too many native upstart services yet. 
Thankfully most distributions don't carry too many native Upstart 
services yet.)

However, testing has been minimal, our version number is currently at an 
impressive 0. Expect breakage if you run this in its current state. That 
said, overall it should be quite stable and some of us already boot 
their normal development systems with systemd (in contrast to VMs only). 
YMMV, especially if you try this on distributions we developers don't use.


So it is not only booting, but also unifying and better controlling 
entire environment.
