| SimplyMEPIS typically tracks Debian Stable. While the 
| current release, SimplyMEPIS 7.0, is based on Debian Etch 
| (the current Debian Stable release), SimplyMEPIS 8.0 is 
| based on the current Testing, but soon to be Stable, 
| release known as Debian Lenny.    
| AntiX typically tracks the Debian Testing release. Since 
| Lenny is currently in Testing, SimplyMEPIS and AntiX are 
| very similar and they are extremely stable.

| The only other potential drawback I can think of is for 
| people who want everything right there, including non-free 
| software. The sidux team strongly adheres to the Debian 
| project principles found in the Debian Free Social 
| Guidelines (DFSG), so they do not include proprietary 
| firmware, drivers, add-ons, or plug-ins that may be useful, 
| but are not "free" in the sense of freely available 
| software source code. The sidux project does, however, 
| provide outstanding documentation on how you can obtain 
| software to tailor your system as needed. If you are not 
| one who is willing to modify your system, then sidux is not 
| for you, but if you are willing to customize your system, 
| then sidux is a perfect choice!
