To those who have interest,
As some of you know I'm documenting the boot process for the Arduino Yun.
It runs a  Linux distribution - Linino  http://www.linino.org/
https://github.com/arduino/linino

So the Yun uses ash, not bash because it wants to save space. ash is
include in busybox.

So here's some read meat from the author/maintainer:

SysV init must die.
