New review in the making !

Postby Sewedob » 22 Sep 2013 20:20

Hello, I just posted a request for a review of SolydXK on the blog from Arindam Sen (http://mylinuxexplore.blogspot.nl):

Hello Arindam, I know I am off topic with this post, but I didn't find another way to reach you.

I read your reviews for quite a while now. I like your style and the fact that you don't use foul language, to me you are always a gentleman to people.

After exploring and using Ubuntu, Mint, Mageia and Manjaro, I am using SolydXK (formerly known as the Unofficial LMDE KDE) as my KDE (4.11) distro at the moment, and I think I will stick to it for quite a while.

It is based on Debian Testing, and is updated each month (semi-rolling release). It is not bleeding edge but very up to date, and very stable. There are not much distro's out there who have these features.

It has a small but active forum user base, with people who are not "fanboys", but who want to help each other out.

Can you please review this distro in the near future, IMHO I think it deserves more publicity.

Thank you from a Dutch Linux user, and keep up the good reviewing and writing!


He answered:

Hi Joost,

Thanks for liking my post. I am also using SolyDK and deeply impressed by it. Actually I didn't get time to pen down a review in August-13. However, I'll definitely cover SolyDK or SolyDX when the next update comes. It is definitely a distro I would like to review and eagerly waiting for the next update.

Regards,
Arindam

Hi Sewedob,

Interesting, it's good to know that they had already found and are enjoying SolydXK.
More reviews are a good thing, it's good getting impressions from different perspectives.
I have little doubt that SolydXK can benefit from more feedback, especially from someone set up and used to reviewing OS's.

Thanks for going the extra mile to request a SolydXK review from them. ;)
