This article has been written for two reasons: a) I was asked to review SolydX or SolydK;
b) I was reading a question on the /r/linux4noobs subreddit and the question was "which distro should I use?" When it comes to the choice of reviewing a distro running XFCE or one running KDE there is no contest. I much prefer to use XFCE over KDE.
Xubuntu is one of the finest distributions running the XFCE desktop. Even if you forget about Xubuntu there is the XFCE version of Mint that I reviewed last week.
For points 2 and 3 I instantly thought "A Debian based distro running XFCE, hmm, what about Debian itself running XFCE". So what about Debian running XFCE? Well that review is coming up next week.
I have been using SolydX on my laptop for a week now and so lets get started with the review.
