Linux Pro Magazine revisits Devuan

Shortly after Debian was forked, in early 2015 Linux Pro Magazine published an article about Devuan titled Shiny New Fork. The first paragraph always makes me smile:

The world is left to wonder if the recent news of a Debian fork is an important event or a minor historical footnote. Either way, it seems like a good story, reminiscent of the Linux stories of the past, when the community really looked and behaved like a collection of individuals rather than a corporate fan club.

Earlier this month in Issue 260/2022, Devuan was revisited in a Distro Walk article by Bruce Byfield titled DEVUAN: The fight for Init Freedom.

Although Devuan might be a niche distribution, clearly it is a thriving one.

Yeah, Devuan is special . . .

We have just received a complimentary PDF to share with all of you.

UPDATE: Devuan just received a little surprise from Linux Pro Magazine after this thread was posted!  A PDF of Shiny New Fork! big_smile

Enjoy!

We are well aware of this. Devuan actually owns the dev-one.org and dev-1.org domains! We are mulling over possible options to get HP's attention.  It would be great fun!  big_smile Any ideas? Please do share!!

Hi golinux,
"...We are mulling over possible options to get HP's attention."
Devuan would be the best Linux distro for a 'developer' laptop. It would be much better than their PopOs Gnome thing  ;o)

Good to see ACTUAL positive press/reviews

Yet I would caution ANYONE to rely or trust

*   Government
*   Corporations
*   Mainstream
*  " News " / "media"
*  Central banks

Re: Linux Pro Magazine revisits Devuan

Nice article. The author even links to dasein's Revisionist History thread so they clearly know their stuff. I might start buying that magazine now...

@HoaS

I have been sharing those links for many years but never with a pulpit like Linux Pro Magazine. I was uncertain how they would be handled and I was pleasantly surprised! Yeah, the subject is still relevant!! Duh . . . The graphic was perfect too! I would post a link on FDN but that surely would get me banned.  LOL!

Re: Linux Pro Magazine revisits Devuan

A positive review without taking an anti-systemd position. Nice! This is definitely an achievement for the project and congrats to fsmithred, golinux, and whoever else was involved from the Devuan side.
