    Phoronix: Void-Linux-Powered Project Trident To Cease Operations

    Project Trident had been an operating system originally based on TrueOS/FreeBSD before shifting to Void Linux as its base and worked on various innovations like OpenZFS-based root installations but now the developers behind the ambitious advanced desktop OS project have decided to call it quits...

    That's too bad I hope they get their mojo back and join up with mx linux or some other group.

      There's more sense in joining a larger distro group, than keeping some "random" distro with 5 users.

        The distros market is crowded and competition is tough. That it's open source doesn't change the basic laws: if you want to launch a new distro you need to bring something new and useful to the table, that caters extremely well for some well understood needs. Fail to understand that and your chances of becoming a sustainable project are slim to none.

          That's why you don't use one-man Linux distros. That's just stupid. Would you use one-man car manufacturer?

            I would, that sounds incredibly interesting.

                Yes, butt it has ramifications, ewe need to be careful what you choose - if get it wrong with woolly thinking, you could led in the wrong direction like a lamb to the slaughter.

                  That cheered me up today, thanks

                  For me, I've decided to leave the flock on my quest for a more peaceful OS experience. The last 3 months using FreeBSD has been surprisingly bliss.

                    That's a weird thing to say. We are talking about technology, not fashion trends. Look at the Linux distros: virtually all meaningful innovation has always came from the majors (Debian, Ubuntu, RedHat, SUSE). Even Arch, which I don't want to underestimate or diminish in the slightest, brought little in terms of new ideas or technologies that would move the Linux world to some next level. It's the non-mainstream small distros (the likes of Void, MX Linux, K1SS, Obarun and whatnot) that stagnate and seem to forever re-implement the same old ideas - oh but look, this time it's with musl instead of glibc! Look, mine is the same but the package manager is written in Perl! Great.

                    The only one-man project that stands out as meaning something to more than just a handful of hobbyists seems to be Slackware, but its significance nowadays is IMO mostly historical (yes I know that it still has regular releases and a community of dedicated fans). And maybe Gentoo.
