My cutting edge system: sidux

Posted 11-17-2008 at 03:17 PM by masinick

I have already written about my other two favorites, antiX (fast) and SimplyMEPIS (stable). Now let me tell you about sidux. It is also a fast system, but it is the cutting edge packages from the Debian Sid repositories that typify and characterize this system.

What sets sidux apart from Debian Sid, though, and from any other system that I know is the manner in which sidux uses technology to manage the instabilities found in the Sid packaging repositories. There is a task bar tool...
