(Just an update of my personal usages.)

I have returned full time to AntiX, as I don't personally see any advantage to using Devuan, I am just so much more familiar with AntiX, & that's my reason.

I am also running 2 laptops with OpenBSD installed - just in case that day comes when they ruin Linux with unnecessary things like systemd, & we can't avoid them.

Tha advantage to using Devuan could be that AntiX will most likely outlive it.

Food for thought:

Former Debian leader Bruce Perens:

"I was the second Debian project leader. These days, I prefer to run Devuan, a true Debian derivative engineered the way I would probably have decided to make it. It's efficient and trouble-free. Thanks to the Devuan developers for all of the work!"

Devuan is better than Debian, OpenSUSE, Fedora, Mint & others

Devuan makes my old laptops stable and fast compared to all other distros since systemd arrived. I have tried many distros in last few years, all produced crashes, dbus errors, video problems, complaints of SSD configuration errors, reboot problems, and most often failure to return from idle modes. 3 T500 Lenovos all had same problems.

Devuan ASCII set SSD partition table, formatted EXT4, installed clean from Live version, sans complaints or errors. With all defaults, including power mode controls, this T500 is stable and boots quickly compared to any of 8 other distros used in last few years.
AntiX I had not heard of till last week, so I can not compare.

Cool

hi Siljrath, thanks for all your appreciation. If those genuinely curious want to meet in person to understand common aims with Devuan, we have announced the first conference in Amsterdam this year https://devuan.org/d1conf hope to see some of you

afaicr, it has been flawless, effortless, smooth, enjoyable, throughout.

very happy.

devuan may have the different name, but they're the real debian in my mind. debian are the splitters.

years of debian use under my belt prior, both debian itself, and also many respins. i dont recall ever using systemd infested debiand. got enough experience n awareness to know to avoid systemd like the plague.

devuan +1

edit: PS: this may be of vital interest https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMvyOGawNwo "Devuan GNU+Linux presented at FSCONS 2016", providing some background.
