Well, no, you can trivially have other process managers in between init and your service processes. You could have one that was dedicated to network services, hey it could even handle opening the sockets, watching them and only launching the actual services if there was activity (sound familiar?). You could have another that was specialised to watch TTY lines (Novell UnixWare had one of those I think). You could have another one for whatever.

Or you can have a kitchen-sink system, where you put all this into init, and it has to support every possible need any kind of service will ever have.

Oo, hey! A micro vs. monolithic argument! Let's all voice our meaningless opinions.

FWIW, I'm not taking a side. Just noting that both ways are possible. :)

Oh, ok. Can't disagree with that!

I would like to nominate your comment for "Quote of the week" for distributions, if it is not too late. It is sarcastic, it has the LOL factor, and it is true as life.
