The GhostBSD project is planning to shift from using the OpenRC service manager to running FreeBSD's RC service manager. While OpenRC offers some nice features and possibly some performance benefits, the overhead of maintaining alternative service management from GhostBSD's parent has proven too much work. "For those who are disappointed with this change, put your feet in my shoes. Maintaining FreeBSD services plus FreeBSD ports services for OpenRC is too much for one person. In addition, I do not have the adequate manpower to keep up with all new services and services changes. I have people helping, but it is not enough to keep up. So instead of trying to keep up with something that already works well, GhostBSD will focus on improving the FreeBSD desktop experience." Details on the migration can be found in the project's news post.
