But isn't Starman doing a fork?

I have never used nor seen a systemd script although I heard about it.
I was able to compare just the huge and complicated systemv init scripts and 
upstart, and upstart is better (if it works:)

Isn't OK to install systemd using apt-get?

I've found that there is a systemd package available for Ubuntu:
p   live-config-systemd                                       - Debian 
Live - System Configuration Scripts (systemd backend)
