Considering #voidlinux as next desktop OS for my Dell XPS 13 9343. Does anybody have a qualified opinion and/or experience with it?
I am looking for a rolling release cycle without systemd and void seems to fit. Desktop will be lightweight and tiling (awesomewm), the rest mainly CLI tooling.
@kopfkind I run #void (again) with #awesomewm as my daily driver. It works great by and large. Occasionally you have a snag with libressl vs openssl, there's fewer packages than many other distros but most things are there. It's easy to roll your own install from a minimal base or start with a full ISO.
Can't tell you about HW support though as I've only tried it on this machine.
#void handles infrequent updates better than #arch, you can do it once a month only if you prefer. Updates are quick and painless, and you can set it up to download but not install any packages, so when you're ready to actually install updates you won't have to wait for downloads.
Updating once a week takes 5 minutes.
