Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"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."
