Dear Init Freedom Lovers,

Once again the Veteran Unix Admins salute you!

We are happy to announce that the Devuan 2.0 ASCII Release Candidate
is now available thanks to the support, feedback, and collaboration of
the Devuan community. Devuan 2.0 ASCII Stable will be following soon.

The Devuan 2.0 ASCII RC installer now offers a wider variety of
Desktop Environments including XFCE, KDE, MATE, Cinnamon, LXQT (with
others available post-install). 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.

When installing from ISO, the expert install option offers a choice of
SysVinit and OpenRC. Official ready-to-use Devuan 2.0 ASCII RC images
are available for dozens of ARM boards and SOCs, including Raspberry
Pi, BeagleBone, OrangePi, BananaPi, OLinuXino, Cubieboard, Nokia N900,
and several Chromebooks, as well as for Virtualbox/QEMU/Vagrant.

The desktop-live images are recommended for users to explore and
easily install Devuan 2.0 ASCII RC and also for the press to review
the default Xfce desktop.

The minimal-live image provides a full-featured console-based system
with a particular focus on accessibility.

Devuan developers have already started working on the third Devuan

images should be ready for testing soon.

Похоже, у Devuan пользовательская база таки больше, чем два с половиной калеки. И это радует!

попробую обновиться, хотя debian 9 откровенно сыроват и надо ждать 10-ку хотя-бы.

На что только не пойдут чтобы ненавистный systemd не ставить.

Утверждение из разряда «на что только не пойдут лишь бы в жопу не долбиться».

да, меня вот тоже заинтриговало описание. пока не копала. но если это то, что я думаю, то надо брать железо и прошивать.

на стадии тестирования - пару раз падала репа, первый раз не критично - я просто не смог обновиться, второй раз пакет был нужен, а репа недоступна... нареканий на работу самой системы нет, но вот переодическая недоступность репозитория напрегает... может роскомнадзор шалит?
