TrueOS (formerly PC-BSD) is a rolling release operating system based on FreeBSD. The TrueOS team is currently testing the OpenRC init software as a potential replacement for FreeBSD's RC. OpenRC is already used by some Linux projects and is an init option for Gentoo users. A post on the TrueOS website covers some of the benefits of the change: "With OpenRC, TrueOS boot times have been reduced from generally over 1 minute to around 10 seconds. The organization of service config files lends itself to simpler manipulation of individual services. OpenRC also provides more reliable service status by using the start-stop-daemon or the built-in supervisor. So, TrueOS now starts faster, is more/differently organized, and is more reliable." Documentation for using OpenRC in TrueOS can be found in the project's Handbook.
