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.

Test Driving Linux Mint Cassandra

,----[ Quote ]
| All in all, the system looks very good, I like the new artwork, it's 
| fast, it includes almost everything you'll ever need for your daily 
| tasks and if you cannot find something you need, I suggest you to try 
| the new Software Portal that Linux Mint created for FREE. I'm not a 
| GNOME fan and all that, but Linux Mint makes this aspect disappear 
| very fast and who knows, I may start to like the GNOME desktop after 
| all. Give Linux Mint Cassandra a try and I bet it will be love at 
| first sight.

| Sidux ships with a 2.6.20 kernel, Xorg 7.1.1, gcc 4.1.2, and KDE
| 3.5.5. Iceweasel 2.0.0.1 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.
