Re: What other distro are you using (besides devuan)?

Debian on old boxes, Devuan on the new ones. No other distro to work, but I like to try others for fun. At work we have MAX, a Spanish distro based on Ubuntu with Mate desktop.

OpenBSD and Tiny Core Linux

I dual boot Devuan and OpenBSD on my Libreboot laptop, which one I use on a given day depends on my mood.
Tiny Core Linux on my netbook-turned-router/fileserver/webserver

What to you think about Gentoo being more secure than Devuan for small installations like a text mode only computers?

Re: What other distro are you using (besides devuan)?

I was running artix as daily driver for a little while with openrc and lxqt but decided to move over to Devuan full time, Beowulf seems pretty stable and Miyolinux i3 spin is good, i have 6 different distros multibooting though, im always hopping around learning new things. Seems some things are done with much saner defaults with Devuan/Debian than Archlinux.

Re: What other distro are you using (besides devuan)?

I used to have a lot of stuff in VMs but stripped that down a lot few weeks ago.
Call it a mass extinction!

void is nice, had it for a long time... but I'm still not that much into rolling releases.
Ubuntu-VMs helped to build stuff for digital neighbours. I'll reinstall what's needed if needed...
9ants and other plan9 derivates got too few of my attention for too long, keeping 9front and somewhen installing the original will be enough.
One version of Reactos is enough!
...

On real hardware I only run Devuan, Debian, Raspbian, OpenWrt and I plan to get Plan9 or 9front again (still throwing coins about which flavour and about the "on X86, X86-64 or ARM" question).

Re: What other distro are you using (besides devuan)?

I have MX Linux in a VM (along with Devuan) and Arch Linux in a container but I don't really use them, they're just for testing.

My laptop runs Debian buster 'cos I need Secure Boot support and I quite like systemd *dives for cover*

Re: What other distro are you using (besides devuan)?

I've experimented a few other distros recently.
I really like Void, and I'm tempted to switch my laptop over.
PCLinuxOS was interesting, but not my thing.
I've tried MX Linux, because it's frequently suggested as another non-systemd debian, but as far as I can tell systemd is running?
From the BSDs, OpenBSD is my favourite.

As for actual hardware installs, currently it's all Devuan.

Re: What other distro are you using (besides devuan)?

I've just jumped from PcLinuxOs myself, to other non-systemd Os's.
FreeBSD-12 & Devuan-ascii (of course) I'm trialing artix64 on my asus R550() laptop , using openrc.

LMDE3, but with pkgsrc on top. I plan to replace most applications with the ones built on pkgsrc, but it's not an easy task.
