Sidux 2009.04

,----[ Quote ]
| Sidux is a distro Ie never tried before. Its
| a Debian unstable based system with a rolling
| release. Basically, its based upon Debian
| nstable and instead of having one big
| release that everyone works on, it just
| updates certain packages everytime a new
| version is released. Arch Linux uses the same
| system.
| Interestingly, sidux bundles both the AMD64
| and the i386 version on the same disk. While
| this does avoid the problem of installing an
| AMD64 OS on a i386 machine, and then fumbling
| for another disk, it also means you download
| pretty much everything twice: whether you use
| it or not. The Sidux DVD is 2GB in size, far
| too large to fit onto a CD. There is live CD
| available in iteeditions.

| installations, a clean upgrade path within
| Sid and supplementary hardware and software
| support.

Sidux 2009-02 - Review and Commentary

,----[ Quote ]
| We decided to take the KDE Lite version of
| Sidux 2009-02 for a test spin and see how
| it fares amidst other debian based
| distributions.
| [...]
| Sidux is a debian based linux distribution
| that is based on the Sid branch. It
| features KDE and is, for the most part,
| normally not something I would recommend
| for beginning users. This is primarily due
| to it favoring text-based tools as opposed
| to GUI based for things such as package
| installation and the like. This makes it a
| great distribution for intermediate to
| expert users who are looking for an
| optimized debian with KDE 4.3.


sidux 2009.02, waiting for antiX M8.2

| public testing longer, but anticapitalista wants to get a few things just
| right before releasing. Meanwhile, the public test versi
