Debian *by default* uses SysV init.  It includes a number of other
init systems, though service definitions for those currently need to
be written by hand.

Ubuntu by default uses upstart, an event-based init system.  Ubuntu
does not "support" other init systems.  There plan to port the sysv
init scripts they get from Debian before Edgy (6.10) ships.  Until
then, they use a compatibility wrapper that essentially turns upstart
into a bloated sysv init.  There is no inittab on Ubuntu.
