It is intended to provide a better framework for expressing services' dependencies, allow more work to be done concurrently at system startup, and to reduce shell overhead.With systemd-nspawn and machinectl facilitate the creation and management of software containers.

  • uselessd

  • uselessd (the useless daemon, or the daemon that uses less... depending on your viewpoint) is a project to reduce systemd to a base initd and process supervisor, while minimizing intrusiveness and isolationism. Basically, it’s systemd with the superfluous stuff cut out, a (relatively) coherent idea of what it wants to be, support for non-glibc/non-Linux platforms, an approach that aims to minimize complicated design and various cleanups.

  • finit

  • Finit is a small SysV init replacement with process supervision similar to that of daemontools and runit. Its focus is on small and embedded GNU/Linux systems, although fully functional on standard server and desktop installations.
