Pros: Cutting edge, but stable.
Cons: None by now

With this issue, SolydXK comes of age. As I am mainly a KDE user, my comments aare about SolydK. New tools (Device Driver Manager, Debian Plymouth Manager, LightDM Manager and Welcome Screen have been added and localised (by the way, it is Catalŕ or Catalan, not 'Catalán'). Nice to see the forum and the Developer Team growing, but much better is having monthly updates (it is a Rolling Release) without issues. Another plus is having the last versions of Firefox and Thunderbird, both being in the default install.

Lately I installed the Xfce version (SolydX) in an old Uniwill 220II with Pentium M and only 1 GB of memory. Nice to see this old hardware running really fast, as it never did with KDE, even with 3.5; also found quite easy getting used to Xfce.
