Arch Linux proposes switch to systemd

Filed under

The developers of Arch Linux are discussing switching the distribution's default boot process from the current System V style implementation to systemd. Users can already install systemd alongside Arch's own init scripts, but the change would see the distribution adopt Lennart Poettering's tool for all of their images.

Many other Linux distributions have switched to systemd in recent times, including Fedora, openSUSE, Mandriva and Mageia. Debian has also debated using the system in the future. The one set of distributions prominently missing from the list are those based on Ubuntu, with Canonical preferring to use its own upstart utility for its distribution.
