Options for Debian without SystemD

Like your Debian without SystemD, then you have options.

Interesting to note that although Devuan makes a big deal of pushing Debian without SystemD, MX is also an option.

Both Devuan and MX have been quite successful dropping SystemD although MX does give you the option to install SystemD if you want.

Not sure how similar the methods of getting rid of SystemD are. But that gives Debian more options to choose your Init then Arch gives you.

One could even just use Arch or Debian. The different init packages are in the repositories and if you’re a level of user where your init system matters then doing it by hand shouldn’t be outside your skill sets.


I also think there are some Arch derivatives without systemd. That makes both even if that even matters.
