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.

That's the keyword for me. At the moment, say your network is disconnected, it halts the whole boot process for however many seconds, when useful work could be done. I'm glad to see that people are working on starting services simultaneously. This is a step in the right direction.
