siduction is an open source Linux distribution and Live DVD medium based on the "unstable" branch of the Debian GNU/Linux distro.
Forked from aptosid in late 2011, siduction offers three separate live media with KDE, LXDE and Xfce desktops.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Siduction 2013.1 is shipped with 5 Desktop-Environments: KDE SC, XFCE, LXDE, GNOME, and Razor-qt, all in 32- and 64-bit variants. From the shipped DEs only LXDE and Razor-Qt fit on a CD with 700 MegaByte. But as CDs become more irrelevant with every day, we are not too worried about this and recommend to use USB-Sticks for installation.
· New in this release cycle is GNOME 3, that we are happy to officially present. Also officially shipped for the first time is noX, a variant without a X-Server, meant for users that prefer to work without an X environment completely or wish to build their own environment pretty much from scratch.
· The released images are a snapshot of Debian unstable, that also goes by the name of Sid, from 2013-05-20. They are enhanced with some useful packages and scripts, our own installer and a custom patched version of the linux-kernel 3.9.3, accompanied by X-Server 1.12.4-6.
· Since Debian has released Wheezy just recently, we use the opportunity to release a current snapshot of the archive, after the opened floodgates after the end of the freeze have flushed a plethora of fresh packages into Sid.
