"I have always had a thing for distributions with KDE,
and checking out how all the leading distributions choose to
implement it. My latest foray into the world of KDE distro's this
time brings me to Sidux, which is a rolling distribution based on
Debian Unstable. I've been meaning to review it for a while, but
have been holding off until the time the latest version hit the
streets. That time is now, as Sidux 2010-01 is (finally) upon us.
"When it comes to Linux distributions, Sidux is an interesting
character. While many distro's "piggyback" on well known
distributions (especially Ubuntu) and release their own "flavor"
after the parent distribution is released, Sidux does things a bit
differently. Sidux is still built on top of a parent distro
(Debian) but is made to be a rolling release distribution by taking
the packages that are in Debian Unstable, though adding
customizations to make it stable."
