I installed devuan on a Lenovo X240 a few days ago (and I'm using it to
write this). So far it's working very well. Happy to get rid of systemd,
which may have been a good idea at the start but by now has become a
uncontrolable mess (and therefore a security risk). Startup doesn't seem
to be slower. I'll install another laptop next week, and if all goes
well devuan makes a very good chance of replacing archlinux as my 
preferred distro.

See you at the LAC !
