Taken from the
man page for
print active processes spawned by init"
Looks like no processes are spawned by "init"
I did some looking into the wiki page and it turns out that
Traditionally, one of the major drawbacks of init is that it starts
tasks serially, waiting for each to finish loading before moving on to
the next. When startup processes end up I/O blocked, this can result
in long delays during boot. Various efforts have been made to replace
the traditional init daemons to address this and other design problems
I'm guessing this might lend a hand to the reason why no processes show up when running
who -p. Looks like
init daemons are getting run out of town.
