Less time spent maintaining init scripts.



So, less than zero minutes for the vast majority of desktop users? Hell I barely even touch init (rc.d) scripts on my BSD servers.


When was the last time you had to "maintain" an init script? Apart from the rare cases when you have to write one, which is mostly start-stop-daemon and a switch-case, when was it really a pain in the past ~8-9 years?


The last time I had to setup execution order of 7 scripts and make sure 3rd starts after 1st is already running? https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/4m0r93/why_did_archl...


  depend() {
    need net
    before inetd
    before xinetd
  }
