xinitd vs inetd


Is xinitd the newer version of inetd?
is inetd still used?
what is the difference?
are there times where you better off using inetd instead of xinetd???

i want to setup an ftp server using vsftpd...and read im better off having inetd start it...but then read xinetd is the newer version...any thoughts appreciated
