Linux Lennart Poettering, the author of systemd, has announced: "I just put a first version of a wiki document together that lists a couple of easy optimizations to get your boot times down to [less than] 2s. It also includes a list of suggested things to hack on to get even quicker boot-ups."

It's kind of troubling that Linux initialization is becoming ever more fragmented with SysVinit, Upstart, OpenRC and systemd all competing for mind-share. That's got to be making things more complicated for developers.

That's the default behavior of competing Linux distributions. Touting features here and there, but its nothing new, almost all of these features are only updated versions of software packages. Also on the GNOME camp, they are still debating of where to put the POWER OFF button, or to hide it with a modifier key. Instead of improving the desktop for "home users", "developers(ISV)", "business users" they are all busy of the things that only they themselves(internal developers) will only care. Save for Ubuntu, I think the strength of Ubuntu is a user-centric disto.
