@el_koraco: Thanks for the helpful reply. I'm really glad to hear from somebody who's tried to go pure systemd. For now, I'm thinking I'll stick with crunchbang minus systemd, as I just got here from Arch, which has been running systemd by default for several months. I really like Arch's implementation, as do many Arch users, though it isn't unanimously popular.
I've been using Linux for a while now, and I've been distro hopping nearly the entire time. Now, with the changes coming to the Linux world(systemd, Wayland, etc.), I'd like to settle on one and stay there. The problem I'm facing is, I don't really like any one distro that much anymore.
hi I have several packages that allow one to run arch without systemd, ( that is without having to install the entire systemd binary package ) they include udev, dbus, and quite a few others, this post is to determine if there is interest in running arch without systemd ( or is everyone just happy ?
First let me get this out of the way: although I have definite opinions in the "systemd is God!"/"systemd is Satan!" kerfuffle, that is NOT my reason for posting. So if you are tempted to reply in flamefashion on either side, I kindly request that you breathe, count to ten, and Just Walk Away.
