This won’t be another rant-post about the neverending systemd vs openrc war. I am writing to mostly state the reasons why I killed systemd in favor of openRC, the Gentoo-sponsored init alternative.
It’s been more than two years since the last post.
Some of you may have thought the project was dead. Well, it was in fact suspended.
There are multiple reasons, the top one being the lack of time to properly follow the project. It takes a while to build and mantain the releases and the process is not error-free at all (rather, quite the opposite). Furthermore, for some time the destiny of the Reiser4 patch has been uncertain: between March 2011 and November 2011 there were no updates on the only mailing list where the patch was published, and development seemed to have ceased.
