New Sponsor, New Servers

Contributed by slam on Feb 28, 2011 - 09:48 AM
As of last night, this site (including forums, wiki, the aptosid.com/debian repository and our archive) runs on a new server, thanks to our new sponsor Webtropia (part of myLoc managed IT AG), who provides 3 dedicated new servers to us (4x quad-core AMD Opteron 1352). We welcome our new sponsor and are looking forward to a lasting and successful co-operation with this fine hosting business. Why the change? ...

Welcome to aptosid

Today aptosid opens its gates to continue the distribution previously known as "sidux", created by the same team of volunteers developing software under the Debian Free Software Guidelines. A seamless crossgrade path from sidux to aptosid will be provided until the end of 2010. However a quick change is suggested because of potential issues outside of our influence.

Aptosid is a full featured Debian sid based live CD with a special focus on hard disk installations, a clean upgrade path within sid and additional hardware and software support. The ISO is completely based on the free main component of Debian sid, enriched and stabilised with aptosid's own packages and scripts.

Aptosid 2010-02 "Κῆρες", based on Debian sid, kernel 2.6.35 and KDE 4.4.5 will be released shortly.
