    Phoronix: SysVinit 2.90 Released With Fixes & Better Support For Newer Compilers

    It's been a while since last having anything to report on the SysVinit init system for those wishing to live in a systemd-free world, but a new release is now available...

    Why would anyone use this horribly written, highly monolithic artifact from bygone ages?

      Because people jumped to another horrible written, highly monolithic piece of software

          I don't think there are that many OpenRC users out there.

            Embedded systems.

            In my current job I use sysvinit to start a video decode application on an Intel Braswell Qseven module.

              Am I the only one bothered (especially with systemd, but here too) by the "ctl" suffix short-hand for control? Seriously. It's CTRL on keyboards. initctrl sounds much better.

                  nah, most userbase is on Systemd these days.

                    Because the only alternative is a horribly written, highly monolithic failure of a project created to replace it.
