So far, so good.  I used Debian for about 10 years (Slink through Lenny).  I prefer using distribution packages if at all possible and got tired of waiting for updates for important (for me) packages so I switched to Arch around 2010.  Loved it until they switched to systemd.  Switched to Void last year on both home and work computers but I never could get Xiphos (Bible study software) to work on it.  I heard about Artix on the Void forum and switched my home computer to it.  All I have installed so far are the essentials: pekwm, midori, xiphos, scala, IDEA, LibreOffice, and hodoku and all is working well.

I'm hesitant to install it on my work computer just yet as it is an EFI machine and I had a horrible time getting Linux to work on it.  I'm hoping to get a new computer to replace it in the next few months and definitely plan to install Artix on it.

Many thanks to the developers.

Glad you are enjoying Artix it really is nice to use I personally have not had many problems just a few niggles. Once the transformation of the repros is complete and every thing is 100% systemd free Artix will be a force to be recond with

Yes indeed...welcome to Artix. :)
I second what @mandog  stated....Artix is developing progressively. It is a major undertaking to get untangled from systemd and I can't thank the devs here enough for making that come about.


Best regards.
We should try to be kind to everyone.....we are all fighting some sort of battle.

The arch way is a very big learning experience and Artix is a extention of the Arch way I mean the original Arch way with BSD init scripts so users like me find it much easier to use Artix I believe.  Systemd has dumbed down the boot processes into a none user experience. I will leave it their as I use both for different reasons.
