  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Siduction - a really nice (and true) rolling release Debian based distro - downloaded the cinnamon version it worked like a charm. Install was really easy!
I like the rolling release however it might not be perfect for Linux beginners - but its not rocket science and they have a really good forum and help is easy to be found.
Give it a try - you will start loving it ...

I downloaded and installed the latest Siduction, LXDE torrent from Linuxtracker.org. I always loved Aptosid and thus coming back to a Debian based distro, Siduction is Aptosid's predecessor. Only one time before have I installed Siduction, which was the LXQt version, and it just didn't catch my enthusiasm. However, this LXDE setup does perform quite well in my opinion. I'm not a Linux power user as some are, plus I have a rather old low spec laptop so I'm not out to out-benchmark the next Linux user for sure; having said that, trying the RPM distros, an Arch based one here and there or Puppy, Siduction has been surprising out-performing all the other Stable distros out there, using the same desktop (LXDE in this instance, or otherwise XFCE). The software that's out there to download just straight after installation is abundant in every way possible. Anyhow, I give this one an 8 cause I do feel this team of devs are dedicated at what they do, and its showing to me. I say give it a whirl and you won't be disappointed for sure!

On of my (two) favourite distros. Everything nice written in other reviews here is true. Ugrading and distro-upgrading procedures maybe not for absolute beginners, but that is the price to exploit (in a rolling distro) the advantages of a huge, bleeding edge, and continuously changing repository like Debian SID.
