You are very funny, your big iron Unix admins that are handling your money, insurance, etc. are using init, not launchd which is used by Apple Lifestyle Hipsters(tm). Serious computing is obviously not your forte, but don't worry there are plenty of managers and executives that think because they understand some things about consumer grade crap systems they know about real computer operation. You could join their esteemed ranks, or maybe even be a systemd developer

"Science is the best method of obtaining Truth"

I worked in science for over a decade but never saw truth with capital T either defined in science or stated as goal of science. Maybe you don't know what the goals or purpose of science are.

Let Webster help you, first definition is what we are discussing:
": knowledge about or study of the natural world based on facts learned through experiments and observation

: a particular area of scientific study (such as biology, physics, or chemistry) : a particular branch of science

: a subject that is formally studied in a college, university, etc. "

There is no notion of "Truth" there, useful information is the best one could hope for, and any physicist will tell you that it is quite possible the fundamental workings and principals of the universe might be unknowable and untestable though they hope that is not the case.

what core things about init need to be done better? Parallel starting of scripts, trivial do that and so there are many parallelizing versions of init out there. Something that monitors and restarts? script can do that. aything else needed, I sure don't need my logging in a database instead of a text log file, and systemd fanboys who point out text logging from the journal possible don't seem to comprehend that's if everything is working that will happen. KISS
