Note1 (Nov-05-2020): We have been informed that Nutyx has converted to full use of systemd. There will be no more coverage of this distribution on this site. Unless this is an unofficial fork of Nutyx which replaces its init with systemd. If you know whether this is true or false please comment below and we would be happy to correct the record.
Note2 (Dec-17-2020): Unfortunately this is true and our final story on Nutyx is published in a new article.
A few days ago, while I was scanning through the site’s statistics I noticed that a search in google had lead here and the search term was Nutyx. I remember seeing the name on the long list of Linux without systemd and the more recent one based on distrowatch but I never had a chance to take a closer look. So the search had caught the name on the list and I decided I should give it a spin.
Obarun is trully Arch-Linux without systemd. It has come with a minimalist window manager since its inception more than 3 years ago. In the past 2 years with JWM and originally with OpenBox, hence the OB in the original name.
Since early September Obarun comes with a minimal no-X image as well, that is about 1/2 a GB in size. The latest one is the minimal iso that came out October 2nd Obarun_x86_64-2018-10.iso w/ md5sum… which will be updated at the beginning of each month.
The new MiyoLinux releases are ready if anyone is interested in trying them out.
