Sidux, a Great Alternative to Ubuntu, Part 2
Why Bother With Sidux?Last week we introduced ourselves to Sidux, the excellent Debian Sid implementation that makes Debian Sid a bit friendlier. Even though I thought I gave a number of reasons why a user might prefer Sidux to Debian Sid, or Ubuntu, or some other Debian derivative, they apparently were not clear to a number of readers. So here they are in nice bullet-pointed lists:
Why Sid Users Might Prefer Sidux
- Direct Sid installation, instead of having to dist-upgrade from Testing or Stable
- Excellent, super-fast fast installer with all choices at the beginning
- Default installation includes only Free Software, with lots of help for users who also want non-Free packages
- 100% compatible with Debian
- Not heavily modified, just plain old Sid under the hood, and plain old KDE on top
- Fluxbox option, and a good XFCE implementation
- Excellent, well-organized user manual
