Distrowar: TinyME vs. Sidux

,----[ Quote ]
| Conclusion:
| For the first time ever in the history of distrowar, we have a tie. This only 
| means that Sidux and TinyME may differ in strengths and weaknesses, but in 
| the end, they are in the same way competent.  


A Look at openSUSE 10.3

,----[ Quote ]
| I found openSUSE to be an excellent operating system. On a scale of 10, I 
| would give it around a 9. I would take away that point for some glitches and 
| minor annoyances that I have encountered. The worst of them was when I tried 
| to install the Skype package that I had downloaded from the Skype website.    



Seduced by Sidux

,----[ Quote ]
| Sidux may have successfully seduced me, but I have to wait and try the 
| Distribution Release so that I can properly and fully express my desire for 
| this fine distro.

| By the way, another improvement  seen in sidux 2007-03 preview1 is the fonts 
| used. 
| The Bitstream Vera Sans 11  is  definitely  better!   Just  visit the 
| Distrowatch  with  the Iceweasal browser.  


Sidux 2007-02 - A Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Simply put, Sidux 2007-02 was a pleasure to use. The live CD 
| worked beautifully, as did the installer. The desktop is very 
| dark, but this is nice to see after using so many “light” distributions.

| After 3 months of development we are proud to announce the
| immediate availability of the sidux-2007-02...

| functional KDE 3.5.6 (en + de); completely overhauled early boot
| sequence; largely adapted installer and graphical installer 
| front-end; enhanced installer for meta tasks; new artwork;o
| ffline manual...


Sidux: A live CD for Debian unstable

,----[ Quote ]
| It's a rare distribution that impresses me before I've even tried it,
| but sidux did just that when, a few hours after I'd downloaded and
| burned a two-day-old preview release, the project announced that the
| next release was available for download.

Testdriving Sidux 2007

,----[ Quote ]
| Sidux ships with a 2.6.20 kernel, Xorg 7.1.1, gcc 4.1.2, and KDE
| 3.5.5. Iceweasel appears to be the default browser and
| OpenOffice.org is only at version 2.0.4. Besides what appears to
| be most of the KDE apps, other apps include The Gimp, Amarok,
| K3B, Kaffine, Scribus, XFMedia player, and Inkscape. There are a
| few system configuration tools, but not a lot. Ksensors is
| available through apt-get.


sidux -- a new star in the Linux galaxy

,----[ Quote ]
| What's most impressive: the huge amount of user documentation
| their documentation and translation teams have managed to write
| up in the short amount of time (the sidux user manual is currently
| available in English as well as Danish, Kroatian, Spanish and
| German).


sidux 2007-01 release

,----[ Quote ]
| sidux is a full featured Debian Sid based live CD with a special
| focus on hard disk installations, a clean upgrade path within 
| Sid and additional hard- and software support.


Sidux vs. Mint: Can You Live the Pure Open Source Life?

,----[ Quote ]
| There are valid and compelling reasons why one might want to use only 
| Open Source Software. Avoids any patent or IP legal issues, better 
| security, and encourages innovation are just a few. However, on the 
| other side of the argument there are justifiable reasons for the 
| inclusion of multimedia codecs, proprietary drivers, and closed 
| software in modern Linux distributions. Neither side is wrong.


ReviewLinux.Com: TinyME Packs a Big Punch

,----[ Quote ]
| TinyME Test 6 was announced today on Distrowatch.Com and we thought we would 
| take a quick look at it. This little distro packs a big punch and we enjoyed 
| the ride. Take a short look at our Flash Video of TinyME Linux based on the 
| user friendly PCLinuxOS.   


TinyMe Test 5 released!

,----[ Quote ]
| The changes for test 5 are almost too numerous to mention. This will 
| hopefully be our last test release before TinyMe Final. 


TinyMe - The little distro that could

,----[ Quote ]
| This derivative version of PCLOS really is a tiny little gem that's slowly, 
| but surely growing into a much bigger diamond.  I look forward to the 
| eventual final release of this distribution in the near future.  


Mini Review of a Tiny PCLOS

,----[ Quote ]
| TinyMe is a scaled down version of PCLinuxOS 2007. The latest version 
| is delivered as a 177 MB liveCD and features the Lightweight X11 
| Desktop Enviroment, Synaptic, and the PCLinuxOS Control Center. It 
| comes with a few applications, so it could be a really light version 
| of PCLOS for older computers or a foundation on which to build your 
| own system as you choose.
