Welcome to Devuan

Init Freedom

Devuan GNU+Linux is a fork of Debian without systemd that offers users control over their system by avoiding unnecessary entanglements and ensuring Init Freedom. An ASCII stable 2.1 point release that offers new features and fixes some bugs is now available. The 1.0.0 Jessie release (LTS) has moved to oldstable status.

Devuan aliases its releases using minor planet names as codenames. Devuan files follow this release naming scheme.

Distributions based on Devuan

The default desktop provided by classic installer-iso images shouldn’t be considered the only way to use Devuan on the desktop. A number of derivatives have already adopted Devuan as a base. When reviewing Devuan we do recommend taking them into consideration. They harness the power of our base distribution by targeting specific usage which is exactly what we hope to achieve with Devuan.
