Sidux, a Great Alternative to Ubuntu, Part 2

Last week we introduced ourselves to Sidux, which makes Debian Sid implementation a bit friendlier. Although there were 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.

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

  • LiveCD
  • 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

Why Ubuntu, or other Debian-derivative Users Might Prefer Sidux

  • 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
