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.

DBUS is not Gnome and does not require GTK+

DBUS is a simple Messagebus that has GTK+ and Qt bindings but does not require them. DBUS is lightweight and will eventualy replace specialized deamons like famd. This reduces the amount of deamons running on a system (more secure).
