sidux is a rolling distribution based on the Linux 
kernel, Debian's most modern branch (called "sid") and 
many free and open source applications. Released as 32- 
& 64-bit, KDE-based liveCD ISOs approximately every 
three months, It may be installed and used as is, though 
most follow the weekly recommended dist-upgrade in 
runlevel 3, theoretically, forever.
