Another possible distribution: Devuan. It's debian without systemd. Might be worth considering.

(So far, my experiences with systemd has not been pleasant)

The topic was started two years ago. Thats a lot of time for operating systems. Maybe a new new poll with new choices makes sense?

*laugh* the thread is so old, that I forgot I mentioned Devuan twice in the previous pages.

LOL :lol: too late CentOS is the winner. The reason is based on:

1) The votes here
2) Good support from all packages for CentOS
3) RPM specs were portable from CentOS 6
4) Ability to create export/import and/or transfer to eFa4 from eFa3 will be more practical

I am also migrating all linux servers including my Laptop to OpenRC. It is working pretty well on Arch / Manjaro. It is simple Ram and IO saving, fast and more open. The guys from gentoo (forum) helping very much by providing init scripts. But sadly it is not "mainstream" any more. I am hoping to see eFa as a docker image so I could use it on my Arch hosts.

Docker is on my wishlist :D. It seems like it could be very useful and provide greater portability and easier physical server deployment.
