Devuan Server

devuanDevuan is a fork of the Debian Linux distribution. Devuan is spelled in Italian and it is pronounced just like “DevOne” in English. Its stated first goal is to provide a distribution without the controversial systemd installed by default. The Debian 8 Jessie release has caused polarization amongst Debian developers and users, due to the project’s adoption of systemd as the default init replacement. Devuan has it own debian package repository which mirror upstream debian development, with local modifications made only when needed to remove systemd dependencies or otherwise preserve “init freedom”. Modified packages includes policykit and udisks. Devuan is supposed to work very similiar to the corresponding Debian release, except giving the choice not to use systemd. Devuan do provide systemd, but it is not the default init system.
