Also pictured, neofetch's inability to detect Devuan Ceres properly.

Possibly the file in /etc/os-release didn't change with upgrade.

I find QT interface more intuitive and clean, for me at least.  Give it try!

Same history with Lxde, Xfce for a very short period and over to CrunchBang!

Thanks, like to keep up with changes and see how things are with other DE's, basically a Wm person but need to know about dependencies too! smile

Recently switched over to LXQT.  Running all Beowulf and recent LXQT 0.14 from Unstable.  Very Happy with LXQT progress.

Honestly, haven't taken a serious look at anything QT, like your screenies and might have to do just that! cool

Used Lxde before switching to Xfce and did think Lxde was a great DE, very fast and lean. Will have to explore LxQT and see what is happening! Many Thanks! wink

he basically said that he has had enough.

Poopering is an unmitigated idiot, good to know someone has come to their senses! ...and now let the systemd demise begin! tongue

Thank you very, very much for posting, just too good of a find! cool

It seems to me that this forum has not an option to introduce our selves. So, I've choosen to use an off-topic for just that.

Greeting and welcome PedroReina to the Devuan Forum, awesome that you started a new off-topic introduction post! cool

Think you will find the forum friendly and helpful, most of us left Debian probably for the same reason and very thankful for the Devuan VUA's addressing their concerns and forking a very successful systemd-free distribution.

With some extra work, you can install Bunsenlabs on Devuan, although I gave up on that.

That is an idea, going from Wheezy to Jessie was quite easy and worked perfectly, guess have to approach putting Devuan ASCII on BunsenLabs with Stretch would be a little more involved.

BunsenLabs certainly kept the awesome crunchiness attributes of CB with their first release and has very much evolved the distribution since with the help of a great forum community and developers. Think they are doing quite well with their BL project! smile

Don't know if anyone has tried putting Devuan on a Ubuntu distribution, I'd be scratching my head asking why? neutral

Does it also go crunch bang like the original?

Since Debian Wheezy and Devuan Jessie were both essentially systemd-free the upgrade went quite smoothly, error free. Made sure to collect everything like grub images, slim, and a few other items like skel to add back once updated.

Would say yes to your question! smile

Just an experiment, hated to see CB go as well! Super excellent distribution!

Did anyone else come from #!?

Imagine there are quite a few who used CrunchBang, came across it in 2011 and actually have it still on an HDD somewhere with Devuan.

STAR and CROWZ ob are similar to #!, use some configs also built with live-build.

I thought the cb-welcome script was rad. If you came from #! what was your favorite feature? If not what was your favorite feature of another disto?

Some distros use a similar welcome script but coded differently as STAR and CROWZ. Would have to say the menu was very nice although personally not dependent  on pipemenus. Learned a lot from #! early on and also VSIDO a sid distribution, fluxbox and some attributes from perhaps from #!.

Great, have a screenshot in Devuan 3,16 CrunchBang

There also exists an extended version of Do They Know It's Christmas.  Sadly, more points out the reason for the concert.

Remember a lot about that time with Geldof and Ethiopian famine. Thought it was a great effort to raise awareness of the Ethiopians hunger and plight with music.

My daughter was born in Nov 1984, the song reminds me so much of that time!

another version, Africa Ebola outbreak 2014 Band Aid 30

cheers && thanks!

Retired now and enjoy holidays and family. Consider myself a conservative with traditional holidays in the US, respect and enjoy participating in other cultures holidays too!

We all enjoy being ourselves, what we embrace as individuals should be respected. Holidays give us a chance to reflect and break routine with the norm.

Guess I'm a holiday person! smile

cheers && Merry Christmas

Same with my family, much of those Band AID tunes are timeless and still relevant! : )

Thanks for reminding me of Father Christmas by ELP, and Johnny Cash Drummer boy, last few days going through my collection of music and listening to Christmas songs, and Youtube too!

thank God it's Christmas
