Slackware proponents call what Slack has a "BSD style init".

Most of the folks who say that wouldn't recognize a BSD init if it smacked
them in the face ;). It is in fact nothing at all like it, it just isn't
SysV-ish, and sucks more than SysVinit to boot.

The current NetBSD rc.conf/rc.d layout effectively combines the good
things about both init styles, with none of the things sysadmins hate
about SysV. IMO.
