Devuan 2.0 ASCII Stable

Dear Init Freedom Lovers

Once again the Veteran Unix Admins salute you!

We are happy to announce that Devuan GNU+Linux 2.0 ASCII Stable is finally
available.

Devuan is a GNU+Linux distribution committed to providing a universal,
stable, dependable, free software operating system that uses and promotes
alternatives to systemd and its components.

Devuan 2.0 ASCII runs on several architectures. Installer CD and DVD
ISOs, as well as desktop-live and minimal-live ISOs, are available for
i386 and amd64. Ready-to-use images can be downloaded for a number of
ARM platforms and SOCs, including Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, OrangePi,
BananaPi, OLinuXino, Cubieboard, Nokia and Motorola mobile phones, and
several Chromebooks, as well as for Virtualbox/QEMU/Vagrant.

The Devuan 2.0 ASCII installer ISOs offer a variety of Desktop
Environments including Xfce, KDE, MATE, Cinnamon, LXQt, with others
available post-install. The expert install mode now offers a choice
of either SysVinit or OpenRC as init system.  In addition, there are
options for "Console productivity" with hundreds of CLI and TUI utils,
as well as a minimal base system ideal for servers. The minimal-live
image provides a full-featured console-based system with a particular
focus on accessibility.

The desktop-live images are the recommended option for people wanting
to explore and easily install Devuan 2.0 ASCII Stable, and also for the
press and those interested in reviewing the default Xfce desktop.

The efforts of Devuan developers are now focused on the third Devuan
release codenamed Beowulf (Planet nr. 38086). Preliminary installer
images should be ready for testing soon.

We would like to thank the entire Devuan community for the continued
support, feedback, and collaboration.

HOORAY!!!

Thank you to the VUAs for all of their tireless efforts! smile


I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
