Part of the distinctiveness of Funtoo Linux is its dependency-based OpenRC init system, so changing this would make it something other than Funtoo Linux. So we do not support systemd as part of Funtoo Linux.

We do support running modern versions of GNOME (currently 3.34 as of the time this FAQ entry was updated, in March 2020) even without systemd.

We are planning to develop a new OpenRC-style init system, incorporating "next-gen" features, which will be comparable in functionality to systemd and offer some systemd compatibility where it makes sense.
