Yeah, the voting was happening over the weekend. It's no surprise they picked systemd, but it is a shame

Saw that start of the weekend when I read this; https://lists.debian.org/debian-ctte/2014/02/msg00288.html

Can they do this?

But I do not think this is the most
important aspect of the problem that needs to be decided. The question of
how, or if, multiple init systems will coexist in the Debian archive
for
jessie is what needs to be decided in order to unblock maintainers and give
them clarity for their own packages.

I guess even more pressing is what will the Debian based distros do?

The switch to systemd isn't absolute. Maintainers are expected to have a standard sysv init as well as a systemd file just for compatibility with non-Linux ports of Debian. Plus Debian progresses at a glacial rate for compatibility and stability reasons, so that should hopefully smooth the transition quite a bit.

As for the other Debian based distros, a lot of them are Ubuntu derivatives and Canonical have already committed Ubuntu to systemd. I suspect the others (eg #!) will likely follow the suit rather than fight the tide.

At the moment. But they're incorporating parts of systemd for login. To be honest, I thought they had confirmed they were switching to systemd for init as well, but I can't find any source on that, but given Canonical's vision of Ubuntu, I really can't see them stopping there.

Additionally it comes with a package manager that can add modules and apps on-the-fly as well as to alter the miniscule iso to build a custom CD.

So, I read this post the other day and porteus intrigued me. A side project I been wanting to work on was making a custom live linux USB os (64gb flash). I been playing with porteus in a vm and Im stuck. I used lxde for my wm and didnt use any "cheat codes" when building my iso download.

I dont have a gui package manager any where in lxde, but I understand there should be one? Do I need to use a proprietary cli package manager or find a slackware package manager cheat sheet? (I basically just want to add dropbox, terminator, guake, and a dock launcher, and then any future packages).

Also, very confused on what I need to do to force my changes to save at shutdown. Ideally, I want all my data to just be saved to dropbox within the os, so I dont have to worry storing data after shutdown.

Is there any other distros I should look at for custom usb os?

While Porteus did start as a fork from Slax (based on Slackware) it is no longer truly a Slackware distro. That has ups and downs but the good news is the ups include more package compatibility and auto-dependency resolving if you like that sort of thing. Porteus still has a command line package manager but also a GUI. Here's a quip from the FAQ -

This utility is designed to allow users to download and activate packages from the Porteus server in module (xzm) format, and to download and convert packages from other repositories, such as Slackware, Slacky, Salix, Debian and Alien. PPM is designed to automatically detect and download any dependencies for the packages you select.

To use PPM, boot into the GUI and select 'Porteus Package Manager' from the desktop menu, under the 'System' heading.

For more information on how to use PPM please read the handbook, which can be accessed by running the program, clicking on 'Help" in the PPM menu, and then clicking on 'PPM Handbook'.

Porteus is moderately well documented so spend some time at the website or just play around and follow your nose. Website is just faster.

I like systemd, and think its design is beautiful. PulseAudio, while working great for me, feels like a bandaid over ALSA though. It's tiring to still see people using the old "Lennart; therefore bad!" argument actually.
