As the original author of initramfs-tools, I'm hardly in an unbiased
position here.  =) Also, I'd hate to be the one to reopen the debate on
the differences.  http://wiki.debian.org/InitrdReplacementOptions has a
slightly out-of-date, but generally accurate comparison of the two.

The best I can offer is that Ubuntu used initramfs-tools for our Breezy
release, and continues to do so for our Dapper release.  The concept in
itself has been flexible enough for our LiveCDs, for our system bootup,
for embedded systems using loopback images and for thin-client setups.
hppa is one of the targets we released, so there shouldn't be any
blockers to using initramfs-tools
