If MX stays sysvinit (my preference) it will certainly use elogind. If it goes systemd it will not. The problem, as I understand it, is that without the no longer developed systemd-shim it's not possible to be able to boot into either one as we can now since elogind & systemd conflict. There is also...
I'd add, what would you choose if your apps and other parts of your computer Only work with systemd? Just what I do now for the one application I need Windows to run (tax software). I run a VM.

The new spectre-meltdown-checker 0.41 I just packaged and sent up scans for these and reported my system OK after rebooting with the new microcode. They still need to tweak the spectre-meltdown-checker. It shows my AMD FX6300 system to be vulnerable to Zombieload, Fallout and the two RIDL vulnerabl...

Have you tried running

Battery Backup for desktop machines is de rigueur here in the lightning capitol of North America. Most of the outages are very short (as in under 10 seconds) but in the summer ones long enough to reboot a computer can happen several times a week. And there are usually a couple longer ones every year...
