Metis Linux is an artix based super fast, lightweight,simple and flexible distribution that uses runit as an init system [ simply no systemD ] & super tiny scripts to install & manage the whole operating system.
Suckless's simple packages are used wherever possible. Using DWM with only the absolute required packages makes the operating system super minimalistic and only uses about 250 MBs of memory at boot that makes the OS super productive.
