sidux 2009-04 Brings KDE SC 4.3.4 and Linux Kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| On the last day of 2009, Stefan Lippers-
| Hollmann uploaded and released the latest 
| version of the sidux Linux-based operating 
| system (codename "Moros"). sidux 2009-04 
| ships with Linux kernel, KDE 
| Software Compilation 4.3.4, and 3D support 
| for ATI Radeon graphics cards. sidux is a 
| full-featured Live CD based on Debian Sid, 
| with a special focus on hard disk 
| installations, a clean upgrade path within 
| Sid and supplementary hardware and software 
| support.


Confessions of a Distro Hopper

,----[ Quote ]
| I still require uber-simplicity and a 
| sweet, elegant, intuitive interface. Part 
| of my exploration was just to experiment 
| with different desktop environments. Y'see, 
| with Linux, you have a choice! The only 
| choice I ever had with Windows was theming 
| and wallpaper. But with Linux, it's soooooo 
| much more than just choosing a color, a 
| wallpaper, theme, and fonts. I can select 
| any number different behaviors for windows, 
| effects, and even applications. How 
| liberating! And what a vast universe to 
| explore. Gnome, KDE, Enlightenment, LXDE, 
| Xfce, Openbox, IceWM, Fluxbox, oh my gosh!


A Look at MINIX (version 3.1.4)

,----[ Quote ]
| I believe it was Paul Gauguin who famously 
| questioned: "Where do we come from? What 
| are we? Where are we going?" (D'oà venons 
| nous ? Que sommes-nous ? OÃ allons-nous ?) 
| While it may be impossible to say for sure, 
| I think he was expressing the idea that we 
| can't really know what we are or where 
| we're headed unless we also know where we 
| originated. Bearing that thought in mind, I 
| decided to take a look at MINIX, the 
| operating system which helped to inspire 
| the creation of Linux.

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

,----[ Quote ]
| I was going to wait for both sidux 2009.02 and antiX M8.2 to come out, since
| there were test versions of both out earlier this month. antiX has been in
| public testing longer, but anticapitalista wants to get a few things just
| right before releasing. Meanwhile, the public test versions, including the
| Pre Final 1 for antiX M8.2 look very good.

Sidux 2009-02 (KDE)

,----[ Quote ]
| The excellent distribution suggestions keep coming from Brian Masinick and
| hereâs yet another one, Sidux 2009-2. Sidux is based on Debian and you can
| download a version that uses the XFCE or KDE desktop environments. You can
| also opt to download the lite version that weighs in at about 600MB or the
| full version that weighs in at around 2.1GB. Being the greedy app pig that I
| am, I opted to download the full KDE version.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
