The developers of Parabola GNU/Linux-libre, a free software distribution based on Arch Linux, are experimenting with new spins of their operating system. The new spins will feature the OpenRC init software instead of systemd. A post on the project's news page reads: "Since a considerable amount of Parabola developers and users prefer to use the OpenRC init system instead of systemd, which is the default, we are proud to announce the first releases of Parabola GNU/Linux-libre OpenRC Edition ISOs! As of now they are still in beta, you can get them here. These are not official, yet, but we are working on fixing all their issues. You can help by testing them and giving us some feedback so we can improve them. Besides this, due to a bug in MATE, we are planning to replace MATE with LXDE in the graphical ISOs (available with systemd and OpenRC) and include the Calamares installer for a more user-friendly experience for newcomers."
