No need. We have never had libsystemd0 on antiX even though we are based on Debian.
And if someone installs a program that has systemd as a dependency then what? On Devuan, there is no systemd in the repos, not just the live cd or initial install. Users cannot install it even accidentally.

AFAIUI, antiX has a special nosystemd repository[1] that holds versions of packages that normally depend on systemd but no longer do.

And I would note that it is also impossible to install systemd in Alpine Linux because that distribution is based on musl libc and systemd has a hard dependency on GNU's bloated libc variant; the same is true of Void's musl release.

Here's a scrot of my new, freshly-installed Alpine Linux system to keep this thread at least vaguely on-topic:

@anticapitalista: thank you for your kind words but unfortunately I can't install antiX at the moment because I don't have any free partitions and the installer doesn't seem to support btrfs subvolumes, sadly.

I tried the live version though and I love it, what a fantastic system :)

If it's x64 arch, I have to say that is the most minimalistic i 've seen or you've achieved.
I went up to 70MB for x64, but didn't play longer to strip.

About x86, well... i have seen more surprises :)

Congratulations for your tweaks/scrots, I saw without commenting mostly.

Yes it is :)

The musl libc base gives Alpine an advantage over most other GNU/Linux distributions: Devuan manages ~55MiB (under OpenRC) and Debian buster's systemd init pushes that up by another 10MiB or so.

Both are better than Arch though, that takes up 70MiB just at a console screen :o

Interesting! I followed your impressions regarding Alpine, musl, ksh/fish. I really find em fascinate :)
They're on my to do list, once i have a time to check them.

On my local tmux, the Prefix key is set to backtick (press it twice to display a backtick). F11 for new window, F12 for next window. Which blends well with mc that uses F1 to F10. And doesn't conflict with a remote tmux that uses the default ctrl-b prefix

Packaging for Alpine Linux is so much simpler than Debian, although they did steal the method from Arch's PKGBUILDs. But then Arch stole theirs from Gentoo's ebuilds so I suppose that's OK.

FatDog 8.0 final.

Top bar is the main desktop's. I run a local tmux with its window list also at the top and non default keys ... so when I ssh into another box and run tmux on that the two don't conflict.

Bottom bar is my second secure (container) bar (Xephyr/unshare/chroot/capsh isolation from the main desktop).

Buried under those 14 windows is the desktop, but that's just any old image/picture that looks nice.

This was mostly a experiment , to see if I could change the Xterm icon size, and yes I could,..Using FVWM on OpenBsd it was fairly simple:

The above was when I doubled the size.
Below, doubled it again:
