"I recently reviewed Linux Mint Debian, a very user-friendly version of Linux Mint based on Debian. This time I looked at another distro based on Debian, called aptosid.

"Aptosid, for those who aren't familiar with it, is actually made by the same developers that created the popular distro Sidux. There was apparently some conflict and controversy within the Sidux e.V association that resulted in Sidux morphing into Aptosid. Here's a brief note that explains the situation:

"As I am sure you are all aware, there have been interesting times for sidux recently. The bad news is that the sidux project is dead.
