| sidux is a full featured Debian sid based live CD with a special focus on
| hard disk installations, a clean upgrade path within sid and additional hard-
| and software support. The ISO is completely based on Debian sid, enriched and
| stabilized with sidux' own packages and scripts.



Sidux, a Great Alternative to Ubuntu

| Sidux is a new Debian derivative that's still just a baby, born in January
| 2007. Sidux announced a brand-new release on June 26, Sidux 2008-02, so we're
| going to kick the tires and take it for a drive, and see what sets it apart
| from other children of Debian. Currently it offers a choice of the KDE or
| Fluxbox desktop, and it supports both 32-bit i686 and AMD64.

| My overall impression so far has been a good one. There have been no major
| hangups. No overwhelming lack of performance. It performs as well as I can
| ask any Linux distro. Due to that, this release has moved sidux ( Xfce
| version, of course ) into my short list.

| A little later than planned due to a number of library transitions in Debian/
| sid, we now have the pleasure to announce the immediate availability of sidux
| 2008-02 "", shipping in roughly 70 MB kde-lite flavours for amd64 and
| i386 (i686), a combined i386+amd64 release with .5 GB KDE for kde-full and,
| as usual, an xdelta to add initial localisations for all currently supported
| languages. Enhancing the sidux family, a roughly 20 MB large XFCE variant
| has been added for amd64 and i386 (i686) for the first time.


Review: Sidux 2008.1

| Sidux's primary motto is that it's "Debian Hot and Spicy". Really, I didn't
| find anything "Hot and Spicy" about it. In fact, the entire desktop
| experience is calm, soothing, and productive. Overall I like Sidux. I'm
| very impressed with its speed, its ease of use, the tools it has and more.
| But it's not quite up to a point yet where I can recommend it to new users.
| Now if a user who had a bit more experience wanted to take it for a spin,
| then I would by all means recommend this distribution. Think of it like a
| house that has a few flaws with it. It's great for someone who doesn't mind
| tinkering, but not for someone who wants a turnkey house.
| Now in the future if they clean up the few things I mentioned and make them
| more new user friendly, then by all means I would love to recommend this
| distribution to new users, because I think they'd do well with it if those
| couple of things could be fixed. If you'd like to download this
| distribution, or learn more about it, I recommend going to their homepage.
| There's a lot of great things there
