    void seems really nice

    I heard that one of the main devs quit though, not sure how the project will go on with that

    The founder, xtraeme, quit.
    However, I think its for the better.
    He started Void as a 1 man show, but couldn't properly adapt to how the project grew (pushed breaking updates without review or communication with the other members).

    He kissed the girl and she seemed into it. Sounds like a win to me.

    @FrodoSwaggins @LotsOfCaffeine what is this systemd thing? Is it good or bad? Why so much discussion around this while choosing distros.
    Can you answer or point me to any article where I can get my answers

    @shiv7071007 systemd, on paper, is an init system and "system manager" I guess

    In practice, it's the first process that runs on your Linux machine, it's responsible for starting up all your services and so on.

    The main reason so many people, including me, dislike and down right hate it, is how it's everywhere. Everything needs to depend on it, everything has to be managed by it, and so on.

    This GitHub issue at the tmux repo basically summarises the attitude of systemd's developers:

    Systemd is a software suit, developed mainly by Leonnard Poettering and Kay Sievers.
    It aims to replace many traditionally independent Linux utilities with a unified, fully integrated, suite.

    Systemd is actually the name of the core that does most of the heavy lifting.

    Its usually hated for being
    linux-only (Contrary to many other init-schemes),
    Violating Unix principles (big AF monolith instead of KISS),
    Scope creep (it comprises an init, service-manager,udev, session manager, network manager, DNS resolver, boot-manager, ntpd, cron, syslog and some other stuff),
    Glibc dependent (is depends on glibc functionality, which makes it unfit for running on embedded devices)

    The Wikipedia pages should be a good starting point.
    Also search for the systemd-debian dispute.

    @FrodoSwaggins I second all of this.

    I'll probably install Artix soon, we'll see how it goes.
