The Next Generation Init System

InitNG is a full replacement for the old and in many ways deprecated System V Init system. It speeds up the boot process with parallel starts, allows you to monitor your running daemons and has many more features.

InitNG was originally started in 2005 by Jimmy Wennlund, and now the development is handled by a team from all around the world.

The project is not dead. If you need help with it, please contact us.
