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.

Sounds like a great idea!

My two biggest remaining complaints with Linux are the
audio situation, KDE apps don't work well with other
apps and vice versa, and boot up and shutdown times.

I say build the new init system and if it is better and
cleaner than the old system then people will use it, me
included. And the DBUS idea sounds great, been needed
for a long time.
