My bad, I haven't updated my profile for about 10 years! I am no longer using Sid.

Hmmm curious. I'm a common Slackware fan and run it pretty much ALL the time.

I'm dual-booting with "Jessie" to find out if s*****d is as bad as I believe it to be.

Ye Gods you almost said.......IT.
I gave jessie a try on my netbook, but, found that my sound card support was spotty so I'm back on slackware-current for that little beast. Other than sound quality the distro was first rate for me.
Slacking 100% again.

I installed Debian 8 late last week on a spare box and realized I no longer know how to manage any distro other than Slackware. It only brought up one of two network cards and I wasn't sure how I was supposed to configure and start the missing one. The interface names appeared to use the old naming conventions (eth0, etc.) and I was expecting the new longer names (I would probably have checked the Arch wiki in that case). Maybe Debian tried to make the transition as seamless as possible for current Debian users, but I wasn't sure how to proceed (googling didn't help either).

Debian's the distro I'm most familiar with, after Slackware. I've dual-booted with it (pre-s*****d) several times. Get fed-up with it after a while, though. Installed without problems on my Thinkpad T410 using wired connection. Had to install firmware-iwlwifi for wireless, and xinput to get my trackpoint working using these instructions.

Once a Slacker ...

Always a Slacker ...

He will be back ... maybe not tomorrow, maybe not in a year, but he will come back someday to Slackware ... (Unless Slackware cease to exist, I Slackware will continue for many more years).

Well, back when I posted that, in 2003, I think Gentoo did use a SysV style init system (though I could have been mistaken). It certainly didn't use OpenRC back then because OpenRC didn't exist in 2003 (first release wasn't until 2007). Of course, in 2009, when my post was replied to, Gentoo used OpenRC (which is still the default now).

It's been so long since I've used Gentoo that I can't remember either.

I now almost exclusively use CentOS as that is the distro run on the 1000+ server environment I manage at work.

I can't believe so much time has passed since I started this thread!

You don't know what you're missing. I'm currently moving the NSA's decryption servers to a Slackware -current cluster.

Technically it's all sysvinit, just different concepts on bootscripts and/or tools to manage them. OpenRC is only an extension to sysvinit.
