    Phoronix: Project Trident Offers Initial Images Of Itself Reborn As A Void-Based Linux Distro

    Project Trident made some waves last month when this lesser-known BSD distribution derived from TrueOS/FreeBSD decided to switch to becoming a Linux distribution that they decided would be based upon Void Linux. Now the very preliminary alpha images of Project Trident as a Linux operating system are available for testing...

    Nice to see people starting to use Void.
    It would be great if Void picks up more momentum.

      Why.

      What's the point of Void?

        With all due respect, but who are all these people you see using Void?

          It's ranked #44 here:

          That's not bad for popularity.

            I am, though it's not my main system.

              It looks like yet another "do not track", paranoid approach to Linux. I'm sure there are plenty users for that.

                Just following the herd means little to no innovation.

                I cheer for the people who dare to be different.

                  Manjaro is #2 and yet posters on Phoronix say it's not a popular or mainstream distribution and then turn around and praise Devuan and MX for the same damn based on Distrowatch rankings.

                  Basically, all I'm saying is someone will say Distrowatch isn't a valid metric until it supports their point-of-view.

                  As an old-school Archer and now Manjaroer, Void has always looked interesting to me. While upset about the loss of a BSD Desktop Distribution, I'm also happy about them using Void as their base and wish them the best of luck going forward.

                    Nah, it's biggest features are damn-near all their home-grown tools are done in Bash, they develop their own init system (runit), their ability to easily build packages from source similar to Arch, and they're their own thing and not another fork of another distribution.
