    Sounds great. What's next on the plate? 32-bit kernel, MBR partition layout, and x87 maths by default?

        And as usual devuan will have that just acouple of month after debian has shipped that.

        It just takes that long to switch out the theming packages. All the other packages are getting redirected straight to debian mirrors anyway.

            I've tried s6 on Artix, and it seems to work OK, but... does it have any advantages over OpenRC or runit?

              What about init-freedom? There is no systemd in Devuan?

                  Debian is a disgrace and should be renamed to Systemdian or whatever they want to and Devuan renamed back to Debian this goes for all their domains and everything.
                  Ian murdock is long rotting in grave, he obviously put his distro in the hands of brainless idiots who did not know what they are doing.

                  rm -rf debian
                  mv devuan debian
                  chattr +i debian
