Obarun

Out of curiosity, I recently decided to try Obarun. Even though it's running in a rather limited (only 1560 MB of RAM) virtual machine on a 12-year-old computer, it boots up surprisingly fast and is quite responsive. I'm using it with the JWM window manager.

Re: Obarun

s6 is lovely, of that there is no doubt, but I do wonder about all the Arch derivatives — Arch itself is perennially short-staffed (hence the recent crusty glibc controversy) so I really can't see how the distributions based off it can have enough expert developers to work effectively.

Re: Obarun

That's unfortunate. My hope is that we can learn some things from this distro. Perhaps some of the better ideas/features could be incorporated into Debian/Devuan -- or one of their derivatives.

Re: Obarun

How is the s6 implementation? It always confused me somewhat. How easy is it to manage services?
