Don't forget Devuan is still around....


Devuan hasn't had a mention lately, so here it is.

I'm just a Linux user, but recently installed Devuan ASCII 2.1 onto three of my computers, & they are working as expected - so just a reminder that Devuan is still another good option if you are looking for a distro.

I can't use it, while Debian has older packages, Devuan's are just too archaic for me. It's still on KDE 5.8!!!!! Nope, just too unusably old.

I like reading the release notes

https://files.devuan.org/devuan_ascii/Release_notes.txt

Edit: for tidbits like this

Code:
 - visiting the Devuan user forum:
      https://dev1galaxy.org
 - shouting (but not too loud) on one of the Devuan IRC channels: 
       #devuan (freenode) - general discussion about Devuan
       #devuan-arm (freenode) - specific support for ARM

I just wrote in another thread that "all smartphone operating systems are bad" - but I was wrong, it should've been "all, except this one".
