A taste of daily struggle with Artix. This is with a clean Artix installation not from transforming Arch or Manjaro. There hasn’t been one instance of updating/upgrading without some error. Now it will not update a whole bunch of files because one backqrounds package has an invalid signature. Continue reading
The downloads for artix have hit triple digits, meanwhile the Manjaro forum has grouped everything artix related into one long thread, while the criticism of Manjaro becoming a systemd-only system has been withdrawn from public view and restricted to Manjaro Forum members. What are they afraid, negative publicity? If the outlook is negative how do they expect positive publicity? Manjaro with sysvinit/OpenRC used less resources than the same exact setup with SystemD.

If someone who is a member of this Manjaro forum and wishes to share the rest of the article please do, as I was persecuted for criticising the direction that Manjaro opted for and was banned from the forum. At the time I posted this it was an open public topic as most of the forum is. The master owner of that forum except from banning me has also made all discussions that expressed Manjaro-SystemD criticism closed to members only.. Little that they know that there is no bad publicity, and criticism will find media to be expressed on despite of all efforts to silence it. On Distrowatch Manjaro is still portrayed as a system open to any init system, but have silently chosen to be a Systemd-Only system.
I don’t know, I currently have two separate side by side systems, both openbox and lxde, that seem and act very different.
