Hi

Star has again been reviewed on Distrowatch, and I thank them for their support! smile

I hope this helps bring more users, devs and support to Devuan.

Re: Star 2.1.0 - Distrowatch review

Am I reading the review right?

It seems as if Star is not really so much a different distro, but rather an alternate installer for Devuan that has been stripped down to a minimal starting system.  Once installation is complete the system is Devuan, and anything from the Devuan repository can be added.  Am I missing something?

Re: Star 2.1.0 - Distrowatch review

Star is a derivative and wouldn't exist without Devuan and all who work so hard on it.

@golinux, @ HevyDevy thanks guys! smile

@mknoop - yes it's Devuan, and no it's not stripped down, it's built up from a bootstrap.
