Systemd, a piece of shit you should avoid by panzerF in Linux

I've been a linux user for years, but I've avoided the systemd debate so far. The criticisms seem valid, so I'm wondering about the practicality of using a non-systemd distro.

What's the experience like with a different init? Any pitfalls, software incompatibilities or other issues I should be aware of? If I were to switch to say Devuan what are the pros / cons of using SysVinit, OpenRC or Runit? Are they fairly easy to create new services, check the status and all that?

The downside to this is a voat like situation where group think is enforced through the karma system and dissenting views are suppressed by the community. Might not be as bad since we don't have downvotes but it still makes me wary.

Thank you, coming from you this is a badge of honor.

Partisan politics aside, emergency powers and health orders have been abused over the past year by wannabe tyrant governors and health officials resulting in untold deaths due to treatable diseases being postponed, depression, addiction, lost jobs, permanently closed businesses, and countless other negative effects. The people in these states have said enough is enough and petitioned their representatives to take a stand against these unconstitutional powers, so good on them for following through (even if it's just to retain their position).

I used to use Waterfox, but stopped using it when it was sold to System1, an advertising company which also bought I've also used Pale Moon and GNU Icecat in the past, but I'm back to Firefox official right now. The problem with Firefox forks is that they don't receive security updates as quickly as the official channel. Firefox is far from perfect, but with a few tweaks and extensions it's a secure and private browser.

As for Chromium based browsers, I didn't care for Brave's UI. Vivalidi is closed source so I'm skeptical there, but Bromite (Android only) and ungoogled-chromium have worked well for me.

It's not.

The Ninth Circuit concluded that a “true threat” is “a statement which, in the entire context and under all the circumstances, a reasonable person would foresee would be interpreted by those to whom the statement is communicated as a serious expression of intent to inflict bodily harm upon that person.” source
