Breaking News: Debian TC leaked decision on init system

Published 2013-11-17 in sections English, Debian.

According to the German news page “heisse news”, the Debian Technical Committee has made a decision on the question about the default init system in Debian: There will be none!

Instead, according to Ian “Vorlon” Bart, Debian will start to distribute a suspend-to-disk image to their users, with all daemons already started, completely eradicating the need for an init system.

I'd also propose init=/bin/sh to the tech-ctte, giving Debian user the ability to choose which services are started at each boot. And it would also give fuel to more flamewars when choosing the default shell, giving linux users the choices they badly need.

I'm not amused. :/
This joke is a bit too difficult to reveal.
