An Update On The SystemD System & Session Manager
Phoronix: An Update On The SystemD System & Session Manager
There's an update on systemd by Lennart Poettering, the Berlin developer that created this project to serve as a new system and session manager for Linux. The systemd manager is compatible with existing SysV and LSB init scripts while it leverages D-Bus activation, heavily supports parallelization, and has many other features that makes it of interest to distribution vendors and end-users. Red Hat has already switched from SysVinit to systemd with Fedora 14 and judging from Lennart's blog post today it will likely gain more acceptance based upon the recent improvements...
Fedora not using sysvinit
I think it would be more accurate to say that they are in the process of switcing, since Fedora 14 isn't due to be released until November.
