Sidux vs. Mint: Can You Live the Pure Open Source Life?

,----[ Quote ]
| There are valid and compelling reasons why one might want to use only
| Open Source Software. Avoids any patent or IP legal issues, better
| security, and encourages innovation are just a few. However, on the
| other side of the argument there are justifiable reasons for the
| inclusion of multimedia codecs, proprietary drivers, and closed
| software in modern Linux distributions. Neither side is wrong.



Test Driving Linux Mint Cassandra

| All in all, the system looks very good, I like the new artwork, it's
| fast, it includes almost everything you'll ever need for your daily
| tasks and if you cannot find something you need, I suggest you to try
| the new Software Portal that Linux Mint created for FREE. I'm not a
| GNOME fan and all that, but Linux Mint makes this aspect disappear
| very fast and who knows, I may start to like the GNOME desktop after
| all. Give Linux Mint Cassandra a try and I bet it will be love at
| first sight.

| It's a rare distribution that impresses me before I've even tried it,
| but sidux did just that when, a few hours after I'd downloaded and
