    Phoronix: Devuan 4.0 Alpha Builds Updated For Debian 11 Stripped Of systemd

    Back in April Devuan 4.0 alpha builds began for this Debian fork/downstream that aims for init system freedom by allowing Debian GNU/Linux to work without a dependence on systemd. Devuan 4.0 is tracking upstream Debian 11 quite closely with its changes...

      I've been using testing/chimaera for around 6 months and it's pretty much what you would expect from a Debian testing. Good job.

        It's good that some people are still fighting the good fight against SystemdOS

          For those, like yourself, running Devuan, systemd is not the init system you are looking for.

            Agreed. Volunteering to be the next Sisyphus is something I would not choose to do, but they certainly have done well.

              Thats what I like about the Linux ecosystem. It is very democratic - I also don't think systemd is bad to be honest it is quite good. However I like that people with the same idea get together and change it the way they like it. So kudos to the dev team may the project live long and prosper

                Same here, could not have said it better myself.
                The way I see it , what makes systemd popular is exactly the thing that makes in so hated as well - Linux only. Surely you can not have the benefits without stepping on some toes, what would make Devuan interesting for me is if they got it working with the FreeBSD and/or Minix3 kernel.

                  Would you be interested in a anti-chupacabra rock?

                    You mean like what Debian GNU/kFreeBSD was? Last I knew, kFreeBSD is still unofficially maintained, although is no longer part of the official distribution. It might be a starting place for your efforts.
