    Do you know if the ZFS on root install options only accessible from running the installer via the command line with flags can be found there? That was the main reason I liked Antergos -- the very easy ZFS on root installs.

    Didn't you know, this is what ppl do now?

    Step 1: Install Arch Linux.
    Step 2: Create a Phoronix account.
    Step 3: Become leet and post about how great Linux is all day ignoring all it's problems.

    They forget some of us actually used Unix before Linux was a thing.
    We are not in the "cult" and echo chamber and we just want to use the best technology available.

    I'll never know. I'm not going to waste my valuable time finding out that the problem is NOT due to 'systemd'.
    I'm a firm believer in statistics. One ignores the large body of facts surrounding an "issue" at one's peril.

    Your logic is tantamount to reasoning that it's perfectly fine to pick up a slavering, snarling animal to comfort it because "...what if its issue is NOT rabies...?".

    ArcoLinux as well (created by well-known Linux customizer Erik Dubois): https://arcolinux.info/

    I've never gotten a broken package in Arch (besides Linux 4.18 issues with Core 2 Duo CPUs, it was in the upstream release anyway), as they're tested before they're rolled out. You can expect breakage when you're using the testing repo, but that will apply to every distribution out there. If there's anything that needs manual attention, information about it is posted in the official RSS feed. Arch is pretty stable and it's low maintenance, which boils down to upgrading packages often, and maybe using pacdiff to take care of configuration changes in software you use once in a while.
    I've gotten at least one broken package this year, but it was fixed within the hour. And yes, it was posted in the package's bug report, but not the official rss feed (probably since it affected few users).

    If someone asks for help because their Linux box is acting 'flakey', the first thing I ask is "What distribution are you using?" If they're using a 'systemd distribution', I tell them they'll have to get help from someone else.
    Note that I do not tell someone with 'systemd-box' problems that they'll have to get a 'systemd' expert; there IS no such person.
    what if the issue is not related to systemd?

    Oh no I got it... but ageism is irrelevant my point was that ArchLinux was different then... and they changed it had nothing to do with whatever ageism or gatekeeping crap you are imagining.

    I would trust Devuan more with their severe lack of professionalism than a site hosted at Weebly.
