Sidux 2007-02 - A Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Simply put, Sidux 2007-02 was a pleasure to use. The live CD
| worked beautifully, as did the installer. The desktop is very
| dark, but this is nice to see after using so many ightdistributions.


Review: Xandros Linux 4.0 Professional

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall I consider Xandros Linux 4 Professional a less than decent Linux
| distribution, definitely nothing to write home about, and certainly nothing I
| would recommend to anyone seeking to make the switch to Linux. Especially
| with the somewhat mediocre job Xandros did with their version and the recent
| patent contract with Microsoft. I also find it ironic that while theye very
| much set on converting Windows users to Linux by the bucketful, they
| ultimately signed a patent treaty with the same company whom theye trying
| to undermine by stealing their users. A pact with the devil that sure to
| come back and haunt them some day.


For the apologists (like SJVN) who think that Microsoft wants to bring benefits
to Linux, read this:

When HASN'T Linux been at war?

| Microsoft wants Linux dead. Write it down.
| My opinion of anybody who purports to be pro-Linux while selling out to
| Linux's sworn enemy was already pretty low. News of Novell, Xandross,
| and now Linspire lining up to seal a deal with Redmond already crossed
| my desk, and the very best I can hope for them is that they find a
| cooler niche of Hell to go stand in.


He rips them apart. Worth reading.

Testdriving Sidux 2007

,----[ Quote ]
| Sidux ships with a 2.6.20 kernel, Xorg 7.1.1, gcc 4.1.2, and KDE
| 3.5.5. Iceweasel appears to be the default browser and
| OpenOffice.org is only at version 2.0.4. Besides what appears to
| be most of the KDE apps, other apps include The Gimp, Amarok,
| K3B, Kaffine, Scribus, XFMedia player, and Inkscape. There are a
| few system configuration tools, but not a lot. Ksensors is
| available through apt-get.

| I'm really impressed - as a long time Ubuntu user, this is the first
| distro that really makes me consider switching.
