Siduction linux 2021.3.0: This is a Debian-based distribution that supports a newer kernel.
The Siduction distribution is a desktop-oriented operating system, and is based on the "unstable" or "unstable" version of Debian GNU / Linux. The siduction has a Live DVD, but also a very fast Calamares installer unlike the traditional Debian Installer which is very slow.
The latest version of Siduction 2021.3.0 was released today that comes in KDE, LXQt, GNOME, Cinnamon, MATE, XFCE, LXDE, Xorg and noX flavors. All ISOs are enhanced with some very useful packages and various scripts.I installed the KDE Plasma version due to the settings that allow scaling.
This version 2021.3.0 comes with KDE Plasma 5.23.4, LXQt 1.0, Xfce 4.16, Xorg and noX images. Xorg comes with window manager Fluxbox, while noX works without X. As we mentioned, the ISOs released today are based on the Debian Unstable distribution, or Sid, which was released on December 23, 2021 along with some useful packages and scripts. The installer is classically Calamares and the kernel is a custom version of the Linux kernel 5.15.11. Systemd is in version 249.7-1. ” Although it is based on the unstable Debian sid, it will not cause you any problems.
After all, an unstable Debian is many times more stable than many other "fixed" distributions.
The distribution offers out of the box, non-free softwares, without having to hack the sources.list.
