Linux Lennart Poettering has posted a status update about systemd, an init/upstart alternative. systemd is able now to replace /etc/fstab and cron, and it seems it will be the default init system for Fedora 14. He has also written a post about systemd for administrators.

I, for one, wonder why everyone hasn't switched to SMF: ZFS has every filesystem guru (and system administrator) swooning, and dtrace makes kernel debugers faint. SMF was the "other" new technology introduced with Solaris 10, and it has to be the most widely used original init system in use today.


Obvious reason: SMF uses CDDL license which is incompatible to GPL.
