Welcome to Devuan
Devuan GNU+Linux is a fork of Debian without systemd. In addition to the current 1.0.0 Jessie release (LTS), the 2.0 ASCII Release Candidate is now available. Since the declaration of intention to fork in 2014, infrastructure has been put in place to support Devuan’s mission to offer users control over their system. Devuan Jessie provided a safe upgrade path from Debian 7 (Wheezy) and Debian 8 (Jessie). Now Devuan ASCII offers an upgrade from Devuan Jessie as well as a transition from Debian 9 (Stretch) that avoids unnecessary entanglements and ensures Init Freedom.
Devuan aliases its releases using minor planet names as codenames. Devuan file names 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.
