No, 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 systemd

It's a security-focused distro like Tails. It virtualizes every process.
>>
>>72706073

It 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"

It's an OS that runs each app in it's own separate VM

>>72706182
I really think this thing just flat out omits anything mainstream if you are not a turbo normie
It 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 distros
Maybe where trying to hard to make it recommend the distro we already like but even answering truthfully the results are weird
Of course we will never know the algorithm because that is proprietary

Yeah, 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.

Get testing ya dumb gorilla nigger. Even testing and unstable are remarkably stable.

From the site:
Devuan suites

>Devuan development takes place in suites that indicate a level of stability:

>stable - the current officially released suite of Devuan. It is the suite meant for use in production.
>testing - where the next stable suite is prepared, there may still be problems but software is usually more up-to-date. testing becomes stable “when it is ready”.

Why do you still trust this piece of shit distro? 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.

Cant 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'.

Void. Is that still a thing? Thought the lead dev got glow-in-the-darked last year.

Well yeah, the whole point of it is that it comes with heaps of scientific software preinstalled

RHEL
PopOS

The 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)

>>72704854
Got Void as first option and Slackware as second, pretty based if you ask me, since those are the two I'm actually using in my laptop and desktop respectively
>>
>>72704854
Got Devuan then Arch, using Fedora atm

Top 3:
>Scientific Linux
>CentOS/RHEL
>Arch
And that is because I put beginner at the Linux knowledge level, although I am willing to learn more about Linux.
What does that mean?
