What's Your System Init?

www.unixbabuforum.inDo you have a favorite system init daemon? Which one do you use and why do you use it? System V with my main Slackware has always been good to me, and I have never had issues, but I know that other distros use systemd and whatnot. Is one preferred over the other"Upstart" will be standard for new versions of Distru's
like "redhat" "Centos"....
www.unixbabuforum.inI have not seen systemd very well supported by many distributions yet, so its maturity is still a bit of a question mark. Where I have seen it implemented, I can verify that it helps speed boot times considerably by running as many start up services concurrently as possible.

I've not noticed any serious issues with systems that actually use systemd. Keeping it installed where it's not yet default is one of the biggest issues with it.

Over time, I do foresee more and more systems using either systemd or other approaches as they gain maturity. The serial nature of the original init approach simply no longer matches the needs in a system initialization scheme, particularly for sub ten second start up.
