Linux Distro To Try: SolydXK

SolydXK is an open source operating system for small businesses, non-profit organizations and home users. SolydXK focuses on stability, security and ease of use and will help new users make the transition from Windows to Linux easier.

SolydX

A Debian based distribution with the Xfce desktop. It intends to be as light-weight as possible without giving up any of the expected functionality.

SolydK

A Debian based distribution with the KDE desktop. This is the big brother of the two and has all the bells and whistles.

There was a recent release for SolydXK, the announcement read:

These are some of the changes:

  • Firefox ESR is now used from Debian repository instead of custom built and installed from the SolydXK repository.
  • You can now use custom mount points in the Live Installer. Double click on a partition to select a pre-defined mount point or write your custom mount point.
  • Improved command handling of SolydXK applications for the Enthusiast’s Editions.
  • The SolydXK scripts were moved from /usr/local/bin to /usr/bin.
  • Grizzler improved the /usr/bin/apt script. Run apt in terminal to see a list of commands with explanation.
  • SolydX RPI has been built from scratch and is based on Raspbian.
  • And many more smaller changes that I forgot to mention here 😉

The community editions and localized editions will follow later. I will post the release of those editions as soon as they are ready. Until then the previous versions will be available for download from our site.
