Do desktops contain systemd code?

I was surfing through Sparky Linux documentation and noticed that I could install a Budgie desktop via "sudo apt-get install budgie-desktop" which I assume comes directly from Debian. That would work in Devuan only if Budgie did not contain systemd nastiness. Do desktops contain systemd code?

Budgie is not on the banned packages list and is in our repos.

Thanks for the reply. I looked at Distrowatch which did not include Budgie as a desktop, but then again Distrowatch is hardly definitive.

I found two ISOs that look promising, netinst and minimal. Is the latter an Openbox installation? I'd prefer to not install a complex desktop I will never use. Openbox is just enough to get around.

I had never heard of budgie till your post and I've been working on Devuan since the fork.

Please reference the index page of the devuan.org website for a description of the various isos,

Also from the Devuan.org website:

Desktop Environments     Default: Xfce
Alternate: Cinnamon, KDE, LXQt, MATE
Others: available post-install

Note that there is an openbox theme in the clearlooks-phenix-darkpurpy and -cinnabar to coordinate with the release's default color theme.
