- yes, it is beta. It's not only the default in kubuntu, but in ubuntu-server 
as well!
- Honestly, I have no idea. I have never experienced more boot issues in 7 
years of Linux.

I like the fact that the GNU people are giving us a better boot loader, but I 
don't mind waiting for more stability.
In this case (Ubuntu), it was pure hubris to change the boot loader to a beta 
version AND pushed upstart at the same time.
