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.

Seth has impressed me again and again with innovative thinking on classic problems faced by Desktop Linux systems - he seems to embrace important developments such as DBus.

Anyways the future of Desktop Linux has gotten a whole lot brighter these past few weeks - HAL 0.1 was announced, Seth announced Storage and SystemServices.

I applaud his efforts - go Seth go !!
