If you don't like systemd, I don't know why you're even considering arch. They've been using systemd for years and don't seem to have any intention of changing that.

I don't trust systemd... sounds too much like "substance D"... We all know what that does for you.

Arch is starting to become the go-to distro for people wanting to get away from debian based distros.

Fuck Gentoo.

You really wanna get your epenis big, use Slackware.

Lol, Gentoo is becoming the go-to distro for people wanting to get away from Systemd. Slack is cool too.

I know it's all about arch now. However at one time it was gentoo. Something about their wiki getting fucked up and people left. Not 100% sure.

However everyone is all about arch now.

Arch uses systemd by default now, so that may take that distro off the table for you.

I favor Slackware. Slack does not aim to become the "popular" distro and it does not look to save the User from h(im|er)self. It assumes the User knows what they're doing. Want to install something? It's on you to get all the dependencies in line. That said, there are tools to facilitate installation of popular programs and tools.

Also, Slack does not have systemd. It won't any time soon, either.

mirrors has rsync access listed as an option. If you have any trouble, try asking for help on IRC or the mailing list. more hints here

Get Calculate, its Gentoo based, but great for beginners. Arch is really nothing to brag about, its popular because of its ease of use and other stuff. If you want to get Arch though, theirs Arch-OpenRC which is a small community distro that I've been using also. http://systemd-free.org/

There's a list of distros there that run without systemd. Closest thing to mint would be MX Linux but if you want to compile stuff just use Gentoo . Arch uses Systemd like the other guy said and most things are pre-packaged.

I guess that I'm going to move to gentoo... no matter how painful.

Unfortunately, what's under the hood is outweighed by what the UI is. A bash CLI with any distro under the hood will look the same, and any distro with a Gnome Desktop will look the same.

Pretty much what I learned after testing various distros for years. Linux is Linux.
