Void Linux 20181111

Void 20181111

Today we are looking at Void 20181111.  It is based on Linux and that's it!  It is built from barebone which makes this a unique distro!
It uses the xbps app manager and is a rolling release.
It is available with many different desktop environments; Cinnamon, Enlightenment, Mate, XFCE, LXDE, and LXQt; and it is one of the fastest distros I have ever seen, and Cinnamon, as you can see in the video, is really fast.
The installer is a bit tricky to start, inside the desktop a person needs to open up a terminal and run the following command sudo void-installer and then follow the terminal base wizard.  It is slightly tricky but it is so fast!  I was shocked!
