General Development OSNews was the first news magazine to break the story on Gnome's Seth Nickell effort to replace the Init system. Soon, it became confusing to many readers as to if Seth is planning to completely replace the Init system or simply "bridge" it. We had a chat with Seth and discussed about his plans on the project (which is a personal project so far) and for Storage, an exciting project which aims to replace the traditional filesystem with a new database-based document store.

I dont like how this really encourages(requires?) running XFree86 at startup.

I dont. I usually startx within a minute or two, but I like the ability not to have to boot into XFree86 at startup.

That, and why would I want the extra memory usage just for a pretty login screen? I understand this is nice for Windows users, but it shouldnt be required.
