    Not really. It has compact library for scripting and scripts are pretty laconic/easy-to-do for the most part. No need for interlinked mess between runlevels like SysV init used to be.
    Example:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    #
    # PROVIDE: something x
    # REQUIRE: something y
    # KEYWORD: some keyword
    #
    . /etc/rc.subr
    name="SomeService"
    desc="Description"
    rcvar="servicename_enable"
    start_cmd="${name}_start"
    stop_cmd=":"
    unmounted()
    {
        do something
    }
    servicename_start()
    {
        do something
    }
    servicename_stop()
    {
        do something
    }
    
    load_rc_config $name
    run_rc_command "$1"
    When you need more, like something to detect whether service has crashed and react to it, ports collection contains bunch of software that'd extend rc.d functionality

    This is a great news this makes the FreeBSD handbook mostly entirely valid also for GhostBSD.

    It's easier to write for. While it's simpler, it is also less flexible.

    It's sad that something that basic can be broken; I tried installing it on a spare machine a few days ago, and suffered this issue.
    Even AmigaOS has working DHCP... :P
