OPERATING SYSTEMS --
Haiku OS, the BeOS-inspired open-source operating system, has reached the point of being feature-complete for launch_daemon, their new boot/service manager partially inspired by systemd.

Launch_daemon for Haiku OS is similar to systemd and Apple's launchd and aims to replace their current shell script based boot process.

Launch_daemon can be better customized by its users, allows for event-based application start-ups, a multi-threaded boot process, and is better integrated with the rest of the system.

Those interested in Haiku OS or just curious how another non-Linux OS is handling their boot/service management can find out the details about launch_daemon via this blog post on the Haiku blog.
