    Phoronix: TrueOS Finishes Porting Scripts To OpenRC

    The TrueOS BSD distribution has finished porting over more than one thousand FreeBSD RC scripts into OpenRC format for this dependency-based init system...

      It ran out today, so they're just being a bit slow I guess. It'll probably be fixed later today.

            Wrong. 24 hours later and I still have to make an exception for their SSL certificate. So they haven't fixed anying.

                I imagine partly. I know there were a lot of Linux'isms that had to be fixed since Gentoo has had stewardship since its creation for quite a while now. I don't think TrueOS uses bash by default either, I'm unsure if it it installs it in its default install. This is good progress I'd like to see OpenRC in FreeBSD but that may be some time off, they are pretty slow at making drastic changes in the core OS. (and thats a good thing)

                I like OpenRC a lot, its easy to use, sane to configure and modify and very fast. I've seen Gentoo systems go from bios to gdm in 2 seconds with OpenRC.

                  Gentoo does already have a bsd spin, but I've had trouble with it being super buggy. I think it was the graphics drivers acting unstable. Though by all accounts they put a lot of effort into catching their graphics stack up, so maybe.

                    Yeah right. I believe that 5-7 seconds is possible but I highly doubt 2 is possible. Maybe with KolibriOS 'cause it's writtein Assembly and super-lightweight or even MenuetOS (Gentoo is lightweight but not as lightweight as Kolibri and Menuet).
