I use runit on all my Void Linux machines.

Before using Void, I used sysvinit plus daemontools-encore. Whenever I
had any problem with any daemon, or whenever I made my own daemon, I
added it on to daemontools-encore, not to sysvinit's
comments-actually-mean-something five function essay length init

Experimentally I've initted with suckless-init plus s6. I even did
Felker 16 line init + s6, which worked great if you didn't mind not
having zombie-killing and signal based shutdown. I've also
experimentally initted with Epoch and Systemd. I like the former and
dislike the latter.
