The OP asked for “open source”, not for “Free Software” according to the FSF definitions.

comment 100% open source linux distro
I fail to see any hints in your links that Debian is using closed source components.

As I understand the guidelines Debian should be free from closed source components.

comment Hide a partition in the partition table and make it reappear later
@Graeme To back up a GPT: sgdisk --backup=<file> <device>. I don't think it's more complicated than the dd solution.

comment WD Advanced Format confusion
I don't know about the GPT support of Windows, but GPT does work on BIOS systems perfectly well, so that is not an issue.

comment Bad Substition how to force /bin/bash as a shell?
@jlliagre That's why I suggested to run the script (in that case the interpreter might be unknown) instead of using /bin/sh as interpreter (which only works if the script language is bourne shell compatible).

comment Bad Substition how to force /bin/bash as a shell?
A bash script is not necessarily a valid POSIX shell script. Either convert your script to be POSIX shell compatible (which would be the best way IMO) or invoke it with the bash interpreter. The shebang line should do its job, that's what it's for. Run the script, don't invoke it with a wrong interpreter.

comment Bash- detect init system
The PID #1 doesn't necessarily be /usr/lib/systemd/systemd if systemd is used, it's a false assumption. On my system, for instance, PID #1 is /sbin/init (I use systemd). It is distribution dependent.

How about: pgrep systemd >/dev/null && echo init system: systemd

comment Bash- detect init system
None of the answers or comments in the linked question are bash related. The solutions should be applicable to your case as well.

comment Is Perl ever a better tool than awk for text processing
There are a huge variety of libraries for Perl. That's not a feature of the language per se. However, it matters in pratice when a choice between several languages has to be made to accomplish a given task.
