Funtoo currently has no plans to migrate or adopt systemd as it's default init system. This does not prevent you from using systemd on your system. CoreOS, for example, is a systemd based system build on Gentoo.

For users not seeking to use systemd, that is, most Funtoo users, this page will serve both as the Funtoo development team's planning for the future, and information on how to avoid systemd in your system.
