Just to point out that antiX is a lot older than Devuan and released a systemd-free version before Devuan did.
We cleaned systemd out the code before Devuan.

But that isn't really the point.

Debian Buster is much easier to keep systemd out than its predecessor was.
This is due to the work carried out by the Debian init-diversity group (some of whom are also devs/coders for Devuan).

You do know that Devuan uses the Debian repos don't you?

BTW - I'm not here to criticize Devuan. They chose what they think is the best way to build a systemd-free distro.
Good luck to them and I do admire their work.

Does anyone know any other Linux distribution without systemD the same stable as Devuan and Slackware?

They don't use antiX's nosystemd repositories. Perhaps anticapitalista will confirm this, I see them lurking here regularly.

MX-19.1 no longer uses antiX repos at all.

Packages may include support for alternate init systems besides systemd and may include alternatives for any systemd-specific interfaces they use

Let's hope that those packagers that do include support for alternate init systems besides systemd in buster will continue to do so.
We at antiX have found buster to be much better in terms of init-diversity than stretch was.

Yes, very impressive. How did you manage to get xorg RAM usage so low?
