What is the preferred init system?

@AvnSgt systemd is the only one I've ever used so I might be biased.

@micrackbiron @AvnSgt i used to be anti systemd until ibused illumos/openindiana for a while and wished some of their init/svc management was in linux.

@adasauce @AvnSgt Just wait until I tell my friends in the privacy chat this one!

@Tayo @AvnSgt Maybe somebody on an instance ours have blocked?

@byllgrim
Np... I know our Opensource Linux Community has created many init system over the years. 😉

@AvnSgt it is called "systemd", not "SystemD" and also not "system d".

@musicmatze
Thank you, for telling me. However, systemd as a command written in the cli has a function to play. But when chosen to write as a poll question, modifications are made for aesthetic appearances. 😉

@roytam1
Didn't make it into the poll this time. I only had 4 slots available to define options and rather than say other, I was looking for a more specific answer. Sorry.

@AvnSgt Apparantly this is controversial, but I quite like systemd. It's code looks nice and simple and I've found it quite nice to work with.

Then again I've got other things to do then explore my options here.

@AvnSgt expected answer, proof that the bandwagon effect is alive and well.

@RandomDamage
I was looking for the general heart beat of the masto community. :)

@AvnSgt eh, people like what they know. So much noise has been made about systemd the past few years that everyone knows what it is.

How many of the people who responded even know that Upstart was one of the init systems Ubuntu used before systemd?

@AvnSgt this poll would create a warzone in phoronix.

I love how GNU/Linux community is calm in this lands.
