Hi all,

I have been using Debian as my primary distribution through Squeeze and Wheezy, although I have a liking for Puppy as well.

I have heard only good things about antiX (and I am a Bernie Sanders supporter <g>), so this seems like a good distro to try out.

Steve

Yes that's about right; now, I know you noticed antiX actually does run X, if not full-CORBA baggage KDE and Gnome, but you're probably also interested in somehow never running into an application that somehow thinks about dbus or udev and thus running systemd...the magnets in antiX are helpful for this. Wait, what?

avoid udev? Dafuq? Xorg depends on udev.
Applications "thinking about running dbus" ~= "requiring systemd". Good luck trying to "avoid" dbus, Chief.

I run Antix w/sysvinit (no systemd) and use dbus and udev. You can run this to check for systemd cruft:

apt-get remove --purge --auto-remove systemd

This will list any installed packages it finds that depend in systemd and offer to remove them. Also include the repositories: deb http [colon] [whack] [whack] antix.daveserver.info/jessie/ jessie main nosystemd
and/or: deb http [colon] [whack] [whack] antix.daveserver.info/testing/ testing nosystemd main

I have been using debian from Potato to Wheezy, in applications that range from checking modules to regular workstations to servers running virtual machines with M$ products in them, be it for friends and individual clients, to corporate ones.
I was very disappointed to learn that systemd was force fed into most distros.
To my very pleasant surprise I learned about Antix last night, in Marius Nestor's blog (thanks Marius). I couldn't help but download it asap, and spend most of the night installing and configuring it to my taste.
I will be thoroughly testing it over the next week in order to upgrade my current Debian installations.

Thanks a lot to the team.
