Being involved with Linux since 96, I’ve seen a lot of projects come & go, so I’m always a little trepidatious about adopting new distros, software programs, etc. I’ve been enjoying and, more importantly, appreciating Void Linux and its non-systemd-based approach. I was reading about the benefits/negatives of systemd and found a link to this post:
Wow. This does not inspire confidence. I started looking at OpenBSD, TrueOS and a Alpine Linux; of the 3, I’d probably go with OpenBSD because they’ve been around awhile & are a solid, I’d just have to learn to do without, again. I’ve used OpenBSD, a lot in the past, and have stopped using things that I enjoy doing: Steam, Flash-based video (now it’s not so much of an issue, but for a long, long time, it was), etc.
Is it still just one person developing Void Linux? Or, is there a development team? If one person quits, is the project dead? It’s only been 3 years, which, like dog years & Linux years is like 500, so it may be a moot point, but it’s still worth knowing.
