We're now 800 strong here!

Subject says it all.  This little experiment has become quite a resource for Devuan and its users.  A huge 'thank you' to everyone who contributes knowledge and friendliness to our community.  On to 900 and then . . .

800 whats?
Active users?

Maybe I'm too far away to understand this without delay...

...or just undercaffeinated...

@yeti . . . 800 registered users but about 250 (less than 1/3) have never posted.  Those who have participated have created a helpful, welcoming environment.

I'm sure there are a ton of other users of Devuan out there too. I've been following you guys and testing/releasing how-to's for years now! Finally getting around to the forums and hoping to help out more. I was ecstatic about the SysV and Debian/Devuan news as well so that helped fuel the getting off my rear and onto the forums...

Welcome!  Both Roger Leigh and Eric Raymond have been hanging around lately.  And Bruce Perens posts occasionally on the DNG mail list.  That's a vote of confidence for what we're doing.

Re: We're now 800 strong here!

So I am one of those who registered here a month ago, but haven't posted yet.  But there is a really good reason for that... I haven't needed any help! 
Short history is I installed RedHat5.2 on my home computer in 1999 and have been running Linux since.  Have been through several different distros over the years, from Mandrake to Kubuntu to Mint.  XFCE has been my DE for 10 years now.  I thought Mint would be my last distro, but like many others, I think it has gotten lost.  Because it is a downstream of Ubuntu, systemd became the autocratic choice.  I put up with the ensuing problems for a few years, through upgrades and even getting a new computer. 

I have been running Devuan for over a month now, and all is great.  I keep my machine running 24/7, but I don't fear rebooting it like I did with systemd at the helm.  And those persistent pesky problems are gone.  So in short - THANK YOU to the developers of Devuan for providing a very valuable and (unfortunately) very necessary Linux distribution.
