My Move From Arch To Aptosid

Filed under
Linux

I recently moved over to Aptosid, and after a few days of using it I think it’s going to be a keeper as a replacement for Arch. While it’s fresh in my mind, I thought I would share my experience of moving – from the perspective of someone who has used Arch Linux for over a year.

Aptosid, made by the same developers that created the popular distro Sidux, is a rolling release distro based on Debian’s unstable “sid” branch, with some hot-fixes and scripts added to make it more stable and ready-to-run. Being a Debian system, the user has access to the huge Debian package repos. And I like their attitude, as encapsulated in the Debian Social Contract: “We will be guided by the needs of our users and the free software community.”
