Git technically works on non-POSIX systems, but it's painfully slow. CVS and Subversion were equal-opportunity crap.

SystemD : Upstart : SysV-Init =? Emacs : Vim : ed

The main point of the analogy is that, just as Subversion is basically CVS with the most glaring problems papered over, Upstart is basically SysV-Init with the most glaring problems papered over.
On the other hand, like Git, systemd represents a completely different way of attacking the problem at hand.
