    Default Systemd Is Now One Year Old; Why You Should Use It

    Phoronix: Systemd Is Now One Year Old; Why You Should Use It

    The systemd project as a new init daemon for Linux has turned one year old. The first widespread usage of it will occur next month when Fedora 15 ships with systemd while others -- sans Ubuntu at this point -- will also follow suit. But why should you use systemd?..

    (Pardon the terse post, just landed in Europe.)
    ... OK, that explains the early post and the use of the French language. :-)

    Ah ah, I had to read the news 3 times to find where the fuck you found some French

    "sans" was the word.

    You forget "pardon".

    While I admit that it's not as modern as systemd, I still really like Gentoo's OpenRC and I think it does tick a fair few of those boxes. It's a shame the original developer abandoned it because I'm sure many of these features would have appeared if he hadn't. There has been talk of Gentoo moving to systemd but in the shorter term, it needs to stabilise OpenRC and get rid of the ageing baselayout-1. This isn't long away now.

    Btw, does Fedora 15 (beta/daily) already ship with GRUB2 by default or still with the legacy one?

    Default The Ubuntu condition.

    1. It's a shame to see the latest systemd package I can get for Ubuntu is systemd-19, when Debian Experimental already has systemd-25.
    2. To force Ubuntu to use systemd, they'll need a punch in the face. Not a real one, but a figurative one resulting from systemd + normal kernel being faster to boot than upstart + ureadahead. Upstart is already beaten, but ureadahead is a tough one: Fedora 15 is close, but still it can't match the Ubuntu boot speed.

    GRUB 2 is available in the repo but not as default. That's possibly something for Fedora 16 along with Btrfs by default and other major changes

    Stopped reading after the first point. When "Interfacing via D-Bus" is painted as a good thing, you just know nothing good will come after that.
