Project Summary

Faster is a very little init script aimed at Linux power-users and geek stuff oriented people. It is not industrial strength and does not comply with any other buzzwords.

What it really does well is providing the fastest boot times you can achieve in you machine under normal conditions.

It provides you a normal initialization process and then exits granting control to any daemon manager you choose (About 2 to 5 seconds to the login prompt depending on your machine power and disk pollution)

It is compatible with any POSIX shell (tested with busybox ash and dash) and a little distribution agnostic. Does not rely on additional dependencies.

Mostly a successful personal proof of concept which I deploy in any machine I have access to. Please visit the home site for more information.
