    I have to admit that, although it's a waste of time, I admire the perseverance.

        So what. They are only wasting their own time, it's not like you are being forced to take any notice. If what they are doing works for them, then it's a success for them. That's what FOSS is for.

          I recently brought up a "Void Linux" VirtualMachine -- no systemd. Really nice, overall. I'm not yet comfortable with Void's package manager, but getting there. Web-search and Reddit have been very helpful. SystemD is not at all missed.

              Good to see. I used the Beowulf testing repos last year for a couple months and had excellent results. After nearly a year of extra work by the devs, this should be a very solid release. I did not realize they were making runit and openrc options - this will be quite a bit of fun.

                Devuan is a Sisyphean task that they have chosen to bear, which is their right.

                  4.19 kernel? WTAF! We should fork Devuan and replace this bloatware with a 2.6.x kernel.

                    Now Debian, see this!

                    ​​​​​​... And be free to remove any traces from sysv from my preferred distros. Should remove several MB's of dead luggage that found a home elsewhere
