OK, flame-war on ;-)
As standard I use Devuan mainly because of systemd. When it was first
announced, systemd was just going to be a replacement for sysvinit,
which I must admit is a bit long in the tooth, if it had stopped at
that point, it probably would have been a good idea. However, it hasn't
stopped there, every time you turn around, it has sucked in something
else, for instance, is there really a need for another resolver ???

You stick with systemd if you like, Linux is supposed to be a free
choice, so I will choose Devuan instead.

Stands back and waits for all the systemd fanbois.
