Right, thanks for reminding me! So many new things all the time. I quite like System V though, but most distroes have moved to Systemd, including Mageia that I use nowadays.
First it was Lilo to Grub and now Grub2.
Initrd and initram.
System V and Systemd.
Mnt and Media.
HAL and udev.
And now one that I really have big hopes for. Moving away from Xorg. I like X and find it to be a good method of doing things, and when I moved from Windows in the old days, it really made me clearly understand the difference between a Kernel, userland, graphical server and desktop environment. I have high hopes for Wayland and hope they come true, although I have to admit I don't really understand the specifications for Wayland quite yet. But if it will be as clean as I hope and empower the desktop creators and hardware, then it will be another wonderful addition.
I best jump into systemd
