No, I haven't had that bad luck.
I have recently used Upstart and I have to say that it is very nice; I cannot see why Poettering et al couldn't work with Ubuntu despite what the article says. Dependency management? Surely that could have been solved differently and deprecated with time. Contributor agreement is a problem for six full time Red Hat developers? Sounds like NIH in disguise: leaving a strategic component in the hands of a rival.
Having Upstart transform the face of Linux init would have been great. Even a fork of Upstart might have been tolerable. As it is, they have created the infamous (n+1)th standard -- and are even proud of it. Just for that they should be ostracized by the community.
