I run Debian Buster Xfce on my main rig, Pep 10 on a laptop and various distros from usb drives. I also used NOOBS to put Debian on a Pi 3. not much problems with either

BSD is looking better, all the time   8)

Or MX? I understand that systemd is a bad thing? I'm just a user and don't understand what all the fuss is about. Can you explain?

When Al Gore invented the Internet, I cut my web teeth on BSD. IMO, there's BSD, then... there's everything else.

If I could find BSD hosting at a reasonable price, I'd be using it, but I settled for a CentOS VPS server (currently).

Pin's second (Hackaday) link does a fine job of explaining his 'went to far' comment. Read the comments too.  ;)

If you hit the Esc key, is there any text displayed onscreen ?

Sorry for late reply, been trying all kind of distros. Curently running linuxmint, Installation went without problems but i still want to install PP10.
Nothing happens when i hit any key, i tried nomodeset it doenst do anything. I just have to shut my laptop on power button cant do anything.
By the way i tried PP10 in virtualbox and it installs and runs better then almost any distro on my laptop, if that helps.

Yes and no.
Yes, for the moment. But, if/when software is designed with systemd in mind it will become difficult to port it over.
So, the crap will eventually hit the fan!  :'(

Looking at Void for example. They had to implement elogind (drop-in replacement for systemd-logind) because ConsoleKit2 is no longer maintained.
On NetBSD I just got rid of it all and use the mount command whenever I need to attach an external device. Also, as a consequence, there is no trash bin on the file manager. Oh well, who cares... the rm command still works.  8)

Honest question here  :(
How far are we (Linux users) willing to go?
This time I think it goes too far, https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=systemd-homed
Or, a longer one here, https://hackaday.com/2019/10/16/pack-your-bags-systemd-is-taking-you-to-a-new-home/

Coming soon to your system:'(

This time it went to far.  >:(

I am happy with this proposal, as I can use it on two other laptops running on Peppermint 9.
Thank you.

Sorry, I certainly am the eternal 'new user' ...
I was fed up and decided to install Peppermint again. This time version 9, so that I can use my printer again.
Th external usb hard disk works fine under Peppermint 9.
Thank you again for your help which  I appreciate very much.
