Linux Like many OSNews readers, I use Ubuntu. I also use several less popular distros. What is it like to use these lesser-known distros compared to the dominant systems? How does running, say, VectorLinux or Puppy or PC-BSD, differ from using Ubuntu or Fedora? This article offers a few ideas. Obviously, it broadly generalizes about distros for the purpose of discussion.

Debian are true to things like the original init., the standard file hierarchy and so on.


No, we aren't. We are going to switch to systemd with Jessie. We're just currently in freeze, so we can't make such fundamental changes.

There was a talk by Michael Biebl and Tollef Fog Heen on the systemd integration for Jessie at FOSDEM.

Gentoo will probably make the jump sooner or later, they already admitted at FOSDEM that their udev fork is pointless ("a toy project").
