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.

Reminds me of the project serel, where services are started according to requirements. It's at www.fastboot.org but seems rather dead. As for the people who think admins must know runlevels - yes, currently they must, but why should they if named profiles could replace that concept? Make Linux easier to admin and you've just lowered its real cost by a bit.
