why would a distribution that does not ship with X by default ever include a screensaver?
it seems to me that plenty of people are running void and are perfectly happy about it. other distributions exist in the same space that may do things slightly differently. if you prefer their ways, that’s always an option. you could also bootstrap your own linux from scratch and use xbps for package management if you want your own way of doing things.
most of what threads like these boil down to, to me at least, is that people are not willing to adapt their computing preferences to a new environment. that’s not a bad thing – in fact, that’s why i don’t use any other distros besides void if i can help it. i’m not going to debian’s mailing lists asking why they do things a certain way - i’ve found what works for me and i go about my business.
plus the installation happens likely once or twice per machine. not something that requires a lot of thought.
lastly - if you trust anyone to give you a password (especially your distro maintainer) you might as well just go back to windows 10. this is the most asinine thing i’ve ever heard regarding passwords.
grumble. i leave void forums for like 8 months and this is what i come back to?
