 Hi Didier, Hi Didier,

 +Sorry, I did not notice your questions before. 
  
 For me, the primary reason for using OpenRC is that it provides standardization. Yes, it does offer some superior features, like dependency handling of services, cgroups support, service supervision, etc. For me, the primary reason for using OpenRC is that it provides standardization.

 +=== Migrating to OpenRC 0.39+ from previous versions ===
 +
 +OpenRC 0.39.2, as //**planned**// to be shipped via [[https://slackbuilds.org/|SBo]], features 2 main changes:
 +
 +  * //openrc-init// is being used as init instead of ///sbin/init//
 +  * Service and configuration directory has been changed to ///etc/openrc// instead of ///etc//
 +
 +Both these changes were done to have a clean{er} OpenRC install which can co-exist with other init systems like sysvinit (default), runit, etc, just by changing boot parameters.
 +
 +Following articles have more info:
