Why whonix uses linux with SystemD?


Why whonix uses linux with SystemD? it’s a botnet and bloat.
I recommend using Linux without SystemD for next releases.


systemD is the standard used by most of the Linux ecosystem for better or for worse. It does meet a need for what it does and has been adopted because of it. We depend on it for some functionality.

Using some obscure distro that doesn’t run systemD would endanger our users since they likely don’t have the resources to patch packages or innovate in build security like Debian does.

Using Gentoo is also not an option since the difficulty of use and update demands are unrealistic for our userbase.
