OpenRC vs SystemD

justy123 - about 1 month ago -

Hi I am a Linux noob over here, I am new to Linux and I wanted to get Parabola, there are two versions that you guys offer, SystemD and OPenRC I sort of know that systemD is an init daemon and OpenRC is like an alternative. What is the difference between the two versions and which one should I get.

generally speaking, if you dont know what the differences are,
you would probably never notice any difference - the typical
computer user never needs to touch their init system - for that
reason i recommend systemd unless you have a specific reason
otherwise; mainly because it is more mature and has the support
of arch upstream

Thanks. In the future if I wanted OpenRC over systemD for whatever reason, is it possible to swap systemD with OpenRC?

it is fairly easy to do yes - just install a few packages
