Don't forget that Sidux is Debian Sid under the hood, which means you don't get security updates, and you may encounter problems with using bleeding-edge packages.
There is a fromiso boot option, which means you can boot directly from the Sidux ISO image on your hard drive, instead of burning it a CD. This is a very fast way to run Sidux without installing it. There are also instructions for installing it to a USB device, and for VirtualBox and QEMU.
The Sidux community is active and growing, with lots of support and good energy. In a couple of weeks of hard use I haven't found any showstoppers, so I give Sidux a big thumbs-up.
