Service Management Facility and SystemStarter[edit]

Are they portable, really? Not to say I object against their inclusion to the navbox at all, but they are permitted into |list1= only if they are portable. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:59, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Service Management Facility is, it just has an awkward license, so nobody wants it. Should I create a new category for SystemStarter? --Ismael Luceno (talk) 18:35, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
BTW, systemd is not portable --Ismael Luceno (talk) 18:52, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
upstart seems to not be portable (depends on inotify, epoll, eventfd, signalfd, timerfd, ptrace, and netlink (for udev and proc)). --Ismael Luceno (talk) 20:31, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
There is a branch of upstart for kFreeBSD. Not sure about it's status... --Ismael Luceno (talk) 20:38, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

launchd isn't portable[edit]

I believe that launchd should be moved to the Mac OS X-specific section. It has been ported to FreeBSD, kinda--it can't run as PID 1, and is extremely experimental, and has basically one person working on it. I wouldn't call that portable. ~ LukeShu (talk) 19:14, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Hello! Totally makes sense, got it moved to the OS X section. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 07:09, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
