Why the name? It would be interesting to know...
Dracout in AUR in Arch LinuxEdit
This section is actually quite pointless. Every major distro has such important package in their repositories. The list is definitely too short and there is no reason to extend it, however it would be usefull to list derivatives that actually use it as default initramfs tool (unlike some from the current list). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:16, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
As the prior noted, this section is a bit dubious. As I have reason to read on this topic, discovered dracut is a creation of Redhat, and mainly used only in Redhat-derived distributions. (Need to add which version of Centos picked up dracut - presumably long ago.)
The original article offered a rationale, but it seems like in the years between initramfs has picked up many(?) of those features, so ... not clear how much difference there is at present. pbannister (talk) 21:41, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
