"Πόντος" concentrates on integrating the changes caused by kernel 2.6.27, init optimisations accomplished by insserv and in particular overhauling the installer.

"While kernel 2.6.27 improves and stabilises hardware support for newer devices, like Intel IPW5xxx and Atheros AR9xxx 802.11 draft-n wlan chipsets, and chipsets significantly, it also splits out a number of binary firmware blobs formerly shipped inside the kernel image. Please attend to non-free sources and Drivers for an overview.

"Starting with "Πόντος", sidux is using "insserv" to reorder and optimise the sysv initscripts used during the system boot, this doesn't only improve the boot times, but also allows easier de-/ activating of particular initscripts using standard tools."
