Devuan, what does this mean
Manjaro. And I am using it at the moment but I prefer Mint because it's more stable.Good to see the website isn't as shit as it used to be 5 years ago.
Devuan but using Ubuntu Hmm
devuan has literally no upsides over debianliterally nobody likes sysv. they could've used an actually decent init system to replace systemd but they used sysv. nobody likes sysv.they could've used runit or s6they used sysvnobody likes sysvnobody likes systemd but nobody likes sysv even more
I refuse to use systemd
Got Devuan but fuck 5 year old packages.>>72705076Bullshit, I'd rather use sysvinit.
>>72705118oh so you're retarded? sounds good faggot, don't bother replying because i'll deconstruct every single tiny little thing about your argument with very little trouble.
Arch Linux and using it as well
void, then devuanhuh
got recommended arch, im a win7 user who only ever used ubuntu and mint in the past
>Manjaro>I use Manjarowizards
>>72705002Using unsecure distro but would rather use a more unsecure distro kek
Manjaro and OpenSuse Tumbleweed
Devuan user here. On two machines.Works for me.
>>72704854>DevuanI am a Debian boi so it makes sense

>Scientific Linux>RHEL>ArchI thought "Don't install extra stuff" meant "Throw some good basic programs in but don't pack it full of shit I'll uninstall at once," not "don't install a single thing by default."
>Gentoo/Void/Slackware/LFSWell aside from slack those were the only choices I ever considered
>>72704854>archI am already using arch

Qubes then Arch
>>72706014Did you mark the option saying you wanted to avoid systemd?
>select stable updates>recommends me arch linuxyeah no
>Arch>RHEL>QubesWhat did they mean by this?
What the fuck is Qubes is this some shill shit
>>72706067No, that's why it was strange to me that it recommended a distro whose single sole purpose of existing is to be just like another distro just without systemdtoo easy just to recommend Debian i guess
>>72706091It's a security-focused distro like Tails. It virtualizes every process.
>>72706073>>72706120It apparently recommends distros based on the most criteria matches. If you selected systemd is ok, then weight that response and any others at the end as "most" or "least important"
>>72706091It's an OS that runs each app in it's own separate VM
Got Slackware and then Devuan, but I refuse to not use systemd.
>>72706182I really think this thing just flat out omits anything mainstream if you are not a turbo normieIt also seems to recommend alternatives to a distro rather than the distro it's based on even if your answers are completely unrelated to whatever change they make on those alternative distrosMaybe where trying to hard to make it recommend the distro we already like but even answering truthfully the results are weirdOf course we will never know the algorithm because that is proprietary

I got Arch, I use Debian daily for almost 3 years now.I'm actually looking at a faster desktop environment but I like how gnome looks. Any suggestions?
It reccomended arch and I do like arch but I just wish the one thing that can be automatically installed for me is driversMy graphics card is autistic and when I was playing vidya the fans were going full blastAny reccomendations?

Pretty accurate, but I answered in such a way to get this result. Btw didn't realize I was running 18.04, thought I had 19.04 kek.
>>72709403Next LTS release will be 20.04.
>>72709496Yeah, I know, I mean when I downloaded the iso to install the other day I accidentally went with 18.04 instead of 19.04 and just realized when I did the neofetch. But might as well use this until 20.04 comes out, as I'm using Budgie and Disco doesn't have any major new features (10.4git vs 10.5git).

What's the problem with systemd anyway? Is it anything I'm likely to care about as a non-neckbeard? I'm guessing not.

Does Devuan use Debian's package repositories or do they have their own?
thanks, been using it for two years

Which one of these FSF endorsed distros is the best? Do you think some of the exclusions, namely Debian and Fedora, are nitpicking?

It's literally maintained by amateurs who don't know what they're doing. Seriously, just read that blog post and the comments below it.If you want a stable and easy to use distro, just use Debian or Ubuntu for fucks sake. Debian can even be installed with Cinnamon.

Try artix, the runit fork of Arch. As a novice linux user who never used anything but ubuntu, I tried all the available non-systemd distros that I could get my hands on. void, devuan, mx, antix, artix - I could install, but others like slack and gentoo I could not. The 2 that I stuck with longest were void and artix. Both runit distros. I dropped void for artix because once I dipped my toes into the world of Arch Linux I fell in love.
>>72720666Interesting, didn't know this
>>72720547I've got the same results, with the exception I am already using Devuan and was planning on trying Void or Artix next and now that I'm reading this >>72720666 it seems I'm not the only one that had the same idea.

>>72716396Cant talk about the ones you've chosen specifically but a lot of them are nitpicking in that it wont get FSF approval if their libraries host proprietary code, even if don't have to or arent recommended to use it as a part of the operating system, by making it available it's no longer 'free'. Parabola is probably what I'd go with its basically FSF Arch
>ScientificLinux>CentOS>RHELIt's nice that it completely disregarded what I wanted and just shat on my plate instead.
>>72705101Artix uses openrcI also like antix but is more a VM/Pendrive distro
>>72704854I have various results: Devuan, Arch Linux, Gentoo, LFS, Bedrock, Slackware, RHEL, Void Linux and Scientific Linux
>>72704854Void. Is that still a thing? Thought the lead dev got glow-in-the-darked last year.

>>72723050The Dev reappeared. However in the meantime the void team installed measures to avoid bigger problems when one of the team members suddenly vanishes in the future.(Such as getting a new domain and a multi access github repro)
