Have anyone tried Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre?
It's apparently a long-term support simplicity-focused distribution based on Arch Linux with OpenRC to support the Init Freedom Campaign.

@hundHmmm, I wonder what the story is with this and Parabola? Seems likely they are related somehow but i'm not sure how.
@kelbot @hund They shared some developers, both are listed in #fsf, both based on #arch. You can also use openRC on parabola
@crodgesSo what is the argument for one over the other? What differentiates them?@hund
@crodges @hundI originally wanted to run parabola on my thinkpad but my WiFi chip is not free enough so haven't been able to yet. I may switch it out at some point.
@kelbot @hund I’m planning the same. Depending on the thinkpad model, you can flash #libreboot into it, and after that you can install a new atheros WiFi card with free software drivers.
@kelbot @hund The people behind Hyperbola are former Parabola contributors.
