I tried Exe Linux (or was it ExeGnu Linux?). Anyway, it's how I stumbled on 
the Devuan project, so there is some connection. But I couldn't get that one 
to work properly for me. The installation shell *seemed* to work, but then 
when I tried to reboot, I ended up with nothing. 

Anyway, I have got Devuan Jessie/Beowulf (I think?) running pretty well with 
TDE - already lots better than Debian Jessie with systemd! However, I still 
have a couple bugs, hopefully minor, which I will bring up in later threads.
