General

In "Rethinking PID 1", Lennart Poettering sketched[1] out the design and rationale for a new replacement of init and Upstart, and the entire boot process.

Richard W.M. Jones explained[2] how to get a Windows VM to run a batch file at boot time, as well as install[3] a Windows service and install[4] a device driver, all remotely, using libguestfs.
