pros: uses sinit, simpler than busybox, (experimental) smdev support, saner flags, keyboard layouts, out of the box support for most other things

cons: uses a lot of my own preferences, not as thoroughly tested as minirc or maybe even god, i only test on crux

if you're looking for 'tried and tested' try minirc, if you're looking for a little bit more sanity try mine
crux has its fair share of downsides, and you should consider them.

* 100% source based
* light dependency handling (eg, you can't uninstall dependencie)
* small port base, meaning you'll have to port many softs by yourself
* sparse documentation
* system V init

Don't worry, there are good points too:

* simple package format
* easily swappable component (eg, init, device manager, ...)
* knowledgeable user base

Its simplicity is its best feature!
Does prt-get have a feature to uninstall dependencies?

no, and that's something which i dislike
Then let's make an uninstall script. I think it's pretty easy: make a local database, use it to determine which programs cand be removed, problem solved.

Found this:
I'm trying to switch from Arch to Crux but I have problem related to Grub-UEFI. My actual configuration provides two partition (sda1,sda2) the first one is EFI partion formatted in fat32, the second one is LUKS+LVM(swap+root-btrfs). Typically in Arch before give grub-mkconfig, I wrote my configuration in /etc/default/grub (an example is attached) but now in Crux seem that this conf file isn't considered and the finally Grub not start right.

the grub config should be placed in /boot/grub/grub.cfg or $esp/grub/grub.cfg (relative to your EFI System Partition location).

Also I find there is no need to use grub-mkconfig in crux, just write the config by hand. Here is mine and it works just fine.
