Having read both articles, it remains to be seen whether it'll see the light of day.

Lots of promises, which I suppose is a start.

Considering the development pace at FreeBSD open launchd is unlikely to hit FreeBSD version 13, which is probably 6-8 years from now.

For me, speed the boot time is not an important goal in view of the decent present boot times of Unix like operating systems. Being able to read easily the on screen boot messages would be more practical for me. Speed is a stress for stability. There is no need to be addict of speed. More important is to develop free softwares where we are forced to use proprietary ones.

It is another "vertical integration" project, which sounds familiar if you had read early on anouncements of systemd, eg. look at https://wiki.freebsd.org/launchd
Quote:
Create a centralized management point for many of the duties that older unix daemons (cron, atd, watchdog, etc) formerly did.
But that was said in the year 2005
