Unhappy [Void Linux]A distribution for me? Finally?

Ok, I've been distro hopping and with every distro I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread... only to find out it sucked in one particular aspect.

I've tried opensuse, fedora, gentoo, mint, solus, kaos, chakra and some more I forgot.

Currently I arrived at void linux. It's package manager is nice, really fast and I can handle myself on the command line. Runit seems ok too.

I don't have to bother with configuring a kernel and get a reasonably sane kernel by default. SystemD free; LibreSSL; Rolling release; a quality, sane and fast package manager; decent package repository too.

Still... are there any issues of potential concern?

I got VOID welcome to the VOID

I dual boot with VOID and Slack, or Slack and Void ( as I changed to slack as the main OS for awhile.)

Void is a rolling release, I have had no problems with Void other than the ones I caused.

if you didn't know they do have their own forum too. If you ever need to get a hold of ones that Void a lot or the developer. they got a chat too but I do not know it, it is googleable.

Install full OS of Void Linux onto a USB Stick

Shameless Plug. I wrote the instructions.

Thumbs up HolyGrail found!!! Void should have own sub-forum.

Concerns? A LQsearch of quoted "void linux" turns up 205 posts (in 113 threads), mostly recommendations!!!

Note 17 'declared' users:
And then there's DW (full pkg list includes sysdig That decides my vote)

How about getting a Void developer/maintainer to contact Jeremy offering ... (like cucumber just did, to get a LQ distro Void sub-forum) ? @BW? (irc: #voidlinux & #xbps)

p.s. Re subforum: a quarter of above-counted Void posts are in Slackware forum, fyi.
