[SOLVED] sysvinit, runit, or OpenRC?

Devuan lets us choose between sysvinit, runit, and OpenRC. Having read a little about the differences, they seem to all meet my needs.

So what I would really like to know is: what's everyone else choosing? Which one is most likely to still be supported when Devuan 20 comes around? What did you choose and why?

Re: [SOLVED] sysvinit, runit, or OpenRC?

I am using openrc since ASCII. Works fine.

My first encounter with runit in a virtual machine a while ago was frustrating. Didn't realy work. Though there are people that are using it with success now. Maybe its time for another try.

Open RC here. Got acquainted with it on Funtoo (Gentoo based). On Ascii it was just a sym-link to SysVinit, but Beowulf has proper implementation. (AFAIK!) Never tried runit.

Sysvinit.
tried to replace it by runit and got some problems with TDE. So have to switch it back.

Had OpenRC back in February.  Came back to Devuan and installed with runit looking for simplicity.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like I'll be using OpenRC!
