I hope I contributed to obarun's publicity then http://sysdfree.wordpress.com/2017/08/22/119/
Any linux that is dedicated in running free of systemd is on the right track.  Someday our "choice" will be rewarded!

Our "choice" is rewarded even now....we are here, and systemd free.

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

Hi dbvu0 here,
 Some of you might know me from Manjaro Openrc forum. I have learned a lot from all of you and I'm happy to continue that.
Thanks to Artoo etal for this great distro!

Another Manjaro OpenRC user here.  I am still running it at the moment with a couple of Artix VMs to see how things go.

Hi there,

I used Manjaro OpenRC for about 3 years. It still hurts a bit it's gone forever. But this place makes it easier to handle.

Thanks to Artoo and all others working on Artix. You do a great job.

I've been using Linux for only 2 years now, and only "know" systemd. Linux evolves, rather than designed, but I question whether or not systemd is the right fork/path. It's really not a fork, but rather it's becoming a "core" dependency and influencing Linux development in a heavy handed manner, all the way downstream, and limiting end user choices. I'm a little worried. I'm not actually anti-systemd, but I want to see a healthy, diverse Linux ecosystem with the power of choice. Large platforms like Gnome with hard dependancies on systemd isn't good.

I really like Pacman and Arch, with Antergos and vanilla Arch being my main daily drivers for the past 6 months. I like to play around in VMs and really liked Devuan and Artix, but I prefer Pacman over Apt and am now dual booting Artix and Antergos.

My needs are pretty simple. Basic file management, printer support, outboard USB audio DAC, Spotify, mpd + client, and a vpn. Simple config, portable, and no issues with Artix. Big thanks to eveyrone that's made Artix a reality.

Hello. Long time Linux and Manjaro user here. I switched to Manjaro OpenRC when it became available. I never really liked systemd, just felt needlessly bloated to me.  I've been using Funtoo as well, which is a distro that only uses OpenRC. Before Manjaro, I think I've used all kinds of distros from the main branches, independent and ones based on these.

Hello

My name is Ruben Safir, and I'm from Brooklyn NY.  I'm a long term Linux user migrating from opensuse tp Manjaro openrc and now we move on this this project.  The switch has me a little nervous but presents opportunities to get involved in ways I had not previously  be able to do.  I've used Linux based systems for about 2 decades, and use wmaker as a desktop.  I code in C++, Perl, and anything else that is required.  I just completed an MS in Comp Sci and I thought I had a PhD in Computational Biology lined up, but it seems to have fallen though, which is very disappointing.

I founded NYLXS http://www.nylxs.com
My home page is http://www.mrbrklyn.com
Some Brooklyn things at http://www.brooklyn-living.com

It is a pleasure to meet everyone.

Am I wrong or is it that everyone here is from Manjaro and there hasn't been a single introduction from Arch-Openrc ?
If so, why so? 

Arch users are anti-social? :D
Or they prefer IRC, or haven't bothered migrating.  What was the size of the Arch-OpenRC community and do they know?  I haven't seen any announcement from Arch regarding deprecating OpenRC.

This was originally the arch-operc page, I think systemd-free.org.  The last updated installer of that system is dated  July-01

Top article there reads:

Important update
The information provided in this site, where it pertains to the Arch ecosystem, has become deprecated with the birth of a new Arch-derivative distro: Artix, the result of the joint efforts of the people behind Arch-OpenRC and Manjaro-OpenRC. Despite being still in beta, it's at least as stable and usable as the former projects. Its repositories override the official Arch ones and contain only systemd-free packages. It uses OpenRC as its default init system with support for s6 and runit.

People using our {arch-openrc} and {arch-nosystemd} repositories and people using manjaro-openrc, are advised to convert their systems to Artix.

I think pretty much artix is the renaming of that project with some cosmetic touch-ups and custom kernels.

Heippa, I am Jyrki, been running Linux since 1997, in the meantime I moved to FreeBSD for few years. I switched back to Linux thanks to Arch, thanks to Pacman and their BSD-style init, this was before they started with systemd. Recently I was running Manjaro-openrc and now I run Artix with XFCE on all my machines. Thanks to Artoo and his team for the hard work and wish them all the best and big success!

Greetings and Salutations. Coming from manjaro openrc after using manjaro since .8 or whatever the depreciated version system they used; manjaro was systemd only at first, but their community brought me to openrc. Have lurked manjaro since the begining and ironically the end of openrc Manjaro.

Started as a ubuntu/mint alpha/beta tester whom left when Shuttleworth threw out wayland after supporting it for ~1.5 years. Went to manjaro to manjaro openrc. Double and triple booted other GNU/Linux flavors over the years Fedora, Void, Obarun, Alpine, Qubes, Kali, Black Arch, Parabola, Puppy, FreeBSD, OPNsense, Redox, and a few others. Love runit (tried on Void Linux) and s6 (obarun), but I was unable to find documentation to load lvm2 on luks on boot from either. Wasn't able to find a simple enoch distro.

Hopefully obarun joins our little collective along with other devs.

Many thank you's and appreciation for the work being done by everyone!

PS: Please bring out the other languages again. We had some Portuguese and French posters on the interim forum.
PPS: When is the site going https?

how do you do the testing?

how do you do the testing?

Nothing extensive. Would load daily iso's from time to time and would run the developmental branch before release. So Alpha or Beta Ubuntu before release and then wait a month or so for the next developmental branch. Report bugs on launchpad and sometimes give patches.

With manjaro/arch I just have arch's gnome-unstable, kde-unstable, staging, community-staging, multilib-staging, testing, testing-community, multilib-testing repositories.

Now I have system-staging, world-staging, galaxy-staging, system-testing, world-testing, galaxy-testing and the maybe not recommended multilib-testing, testing, testing-community.

Anyone know the official stance on using arch's multilib-testing, testing, testing-community repos?

I tried adding the staging to this, but the dependencies broke with 15+ repos.

I like arch/manjaro/artix. I have this quagmire of wanting things to break, but still be stable and functional. Arch rarely breaks, manjaro even less, but I am still on the bleeding edge. So it just works and is very up to date. Not git fresh, but fresh enough.

Ironically systemd broke more than openrc ever has.

Does that answer your question?
