Well there is nothing to tear down on this matter in FreeBSD, you just editIf you list all the current services you will see things like "network","network.em0", "network.wlan0", and more. These "network.<device>" services can be started/stopped/restarted individually *without* touching any other network devices and helping to ensure stable network connectivity on servers and such even when making configuration changes to particular devices. This is a ton better than the old way of completely tearing down and rebuilding the networking stack just because you wanted to change a static IP on one device.
ifconfig_em0="inet 10.10.10.100 netmask 255.255.255.0"then
#ifconfig em0 down | upfor that particular interface. That is not tearing down a network stack. I believe this applies to the
systemd? This daemon supervisory role you talk about, sounds a lot like what
systemdis said to do. The difference, if I understand it right, is that the OpenRC project has a narrower scope, respecting the Unix philosophy. May you kindly answer this one, if you are informed on it.

I do. And the 9 seconds it takes to boot the system from an SSD certainly won't kill me. Probably two-thirds of that time is just the WiFi starting up, so if I could postpone that until after everything else has started, the time from the loader menu to my window manager would be much shorter. But like I said, the boot time is fine as it is, so I haven't actually looked into whether postponing network connections until the end is possible. Replacing the current init system just for that one thing would be overkill, though other advantages might be worth some consideration.Who reboots their laptop every day?

Ever since I can remember, the booting time and application startup time served on desktops as a subjective performance meter akin to 0-100kmh (0-60mph) for cars. Besides that, faster startup and less waiting makes people happy, instant-on being the holly grail. Also with open operating systems like the UNIX-based ones, desktop users find satisfaction not only in customizing for looks but also for speed. "Desktop" being the key word.I already hate it. Smells a lot like Linux. No, thanks, I like the current RC. I also see no benefit if a system boots faster.
