You don't need to worry much: there are so many things broken out there that is very unlikely we will find the time to "fix" what is not.dave-570 wrote:All I have to say about boot times and OpenRC is " if it ain't broke, don't fix it" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Some of the core concepts at the base of systemd are actually quite good, the implementation a lot less, the deployement literally sucks.Me being a suspicious person, and the programmer who wrote systemd being and "Employee" of Red hat, I think after red Hat has all of the Linux developers totally sucked into systemd, they will copyright it and the Linux will just be another Windows. Now because the programmer, I can't think of his name, is an employee, anything he codes is the property of Red hat!! I hope I'm wrong but the way every one jumped on systemd just seemed rather strange to me. Now there are some packages that won't even run without systemd, (windows syndrome again). I moved to the BSDs because i wanted a choice, besides the BSDs are much better.
Systemd will have some effects to the BSD world too, some software will depend on systemd features and it will be increasingly difficult to port/install/run it on FreeBSD/GhostBSD. But it will not be the end of the world, there will be old and new alternatives, that's how free software works and always did.
