A developer affiliated with boycottsystemd.org has announced and released a fork of systemd, sardonically named uselessd.

The gist of it:

uselessd (the useless daemon, or the daemon that uses less... depending on your viewpoint) is a project which aims to reduce systemd to a base initd, process supervisor and transactional dependency system, 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 platforms and an approach that aims to minimize complicated design.

uselessd is still in its early stages and it is not recommended for regular use or system integration, but nonetheless, below is what we have thus far.

They then go on to tout being able to compile on libc implementations besides glibc, stripping out unnecessary daemons and unit classes, working without udev or the journal, replacing systemd-fsck with a service file, and early work on a FreeBSD port (though not yet running).

Responses from the wider Linux community are yet to be heard.

    chris.alex.thomas, why are you such a negative, hypocritical person? Every comment of yours that I've seen here so far has been filled with immature insults ("fucking retarded", "bunch of babies", etc.), cursing and self-contradictory views.

    I also find it very hard to read your comments. You need to use proper capitalization, proper grammar, proper spelling, and far fewer "..." if you want to be more easily understood.

    Well being a grammar nazi won't win you any arguments, it does however prove you're a pedantic person who cares more about the letters of a word, than the meaning behind it.

    so far, I've not found a single contradictory view......so feel free to explain though.

    if you're unable to grok normal human speech or typing patterns, then you're going to find the internet a difficult place to occupy.
