Projects / InitNG


Initng is a full replacement of the old and in many ways deprecated sysvinit tool. It is designed with speed in mind, doing as much as possible asynchronously, and using the system resources more efficiently.

            Im at work now so i cant test it IRL but i think its promising. The speedup in the charts was pretty impressive. Ill chug it into my desktop at home to test and play around a bit. Ill be back! I have read everywhere about how linux needs a better init system but this is the first usable code ive seen so far.
