The Arch Linux developers feel it's time to switch from using SysVInit to systemd
As shared today via the official Arch Linux Google+ Page
and on the arch-dev-public mailing list
, Arch Linux developers are beginning their move to systemd as Arch's init system.
Among the Linux distributions using systemd as the Linux init daemon are Fedora, openSUSE, Mandriva, and Mageia. One of the notable distributions missing out on systemd adoption is Ubuntu, but Canonical hasn't been interested in replacing Upstart. Meanwhile for Debian, systemd is available from the Debian testing repository.
