| I didn't run into any stability issues and the inclusion of multimedia
| support was nice. I also liked that it synced up with the official Debian
| repositories. MP3 support will rule out any Debian diehards, but I imagine
| they would just use vanilla Sid instead.



Seduced by Sidux

| Sidux may have successfully seduced me, but I have to wait and try the
| Distribution Release so that I can properly and fully express my desire for
| this fine distro.

| By the way, another improvement seen in sidux 2007-03 preview1 is the fonts
| used.
| The Bitstream Vera Sans 11 is definitely better! Just visit the
| Distrowatch with the Iceweasal browser.

| 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.

Sidux: A live CD for Debian unstable

| 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
| burned a two-day-old preview release, the project announced that the
| next release was available for download.

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.

| What's most impressive: the huge amount of user documentation
| their documentation and translation teams have managed to write
| up in the short amount of time (the sidux user manual is currently
| available in English as well as Danish, Kroatian, Spanish and
| German).
