Ubuntu – How to replace upstart with systemd


Since Mark Shuttleworth decided to switch to sytemd in the future, I was wondering if I can install it on my Ubuntu now?

You don't have to do anything. You are using systemd by default.

You are out of luck. Ubuntu repositories do not provide the systemd binaries for versions before Utopic, despite the fact that their sources do generate the files. You can learn more about this in this answer.
