But if devs are willing to share what i'd like to know is
- do antiX and MX use really different sysVinit systems - only MX seems to require the shim, why is that
- is the loss of current live/snapshotting capabilities the holdout to moving to systemd, or a more "philosophical" veto ?
- could MX be better aligned with antiX by dropping the shim and perhaps document and try to provide recipes or alternative init scripts for SW that seems to require systemd
- does remaining one of the top-ranking distros matter more than preserving synergy with antiX and the unique capabilities it brings to the table
