Looks like SolydXK is going be interviewed.

Talking about SolydXK, another distribution or totally off-topic but within the Rules ? It's the right place!

Just watched it (downloaded it since sometimes even YouTube streaming stalls on me at times).

They gave SolydXK a good review! Can't wait for the Unplugged interview. Another interesting thing they brought up was the reception some new people get when they start out with Ubuntu. I actually don't mind Ubuntu. It's good, works. But I don't like the release cycles at all and I hate Unity. These are the reasons I switched.

FWIW, I really like the idea of rolling Debian so much that I'm trying to convince my boss to switch our Linux server from Ubuntu to Debian. I'm going to be working on that after this week (I have a project I'm finishing up this week first). The idea is no more having to redo every time an LTS goes EOL.

SolydXK taught me quite a bit and gave me some ideas on both work and personal computing. I think you guys pegged it with this distro! :)

I just finished watching it on my Roku 2, and look forward to the Linux Unplugged interview this tuesday. It would have been good to see SolydXK done on a regular installation instead of in Virtualbox however, that's the only true way to test hardware/drivers and performance. I am very glad they did check out both kde & xfce versions. Maybe Matt & Chris will end up running it on a few of their rigs who knows, maybe with a little arm twisting in the interview perhaps ;)

Yep just finished as always download and start my week Mon. morning watching as I wake up.
20min. review between 36:30-56:30. Pretty good and honest review pointing out some issues.

During the interview think those issues should be addressed. Btfrs? UEFI issue is being dealt with and plug the new installer. Also the universal notice is default desktop theme isn't elegant enough for modern present day look. Not a big issue for many as know we can change it. But first impressions can set the mindset framework before assessing everything after.

Congrats to the SolydXK team as Mat & Chris are Distro Hopping Veteran's so impressing them takes more than just a pretty face. And are knowledgeable about under the hood processes & needs for the future. So getting high marks from them indicates you are on the right track and putting forth an outstanding distro.

They gave a really good review and liked both SolydX and K. Can't wait for the Interview with the founders.

Just got back from the interview chat (listened and chatted). Good to see some of you there! :)

Schoelje and zerozero: You guys did a great interview! Informative and I think discussed some important points. I wish the interview was longer. Hopefully you guys will do more interviews with various places getting the word out.

Sorry, I kinda played spokesperson a little bit in the chat room but wanted to get the word out for the great distro and hopefully they will come to the forum here and try out SolydXK.

I also hope we will have more testers and contributors as more people start using SolydXK. I think this is going to be a great year for the distro.

Did any of you catch that comment where Chris mentioned that Richard Stallman mentioned SolydXK or did I get that confused with something else??

I was able to download and watch the show, but, darn, I missed the interview. Is there anyway/link that I can connect to and view/listen to the recorded interview?

watched linux unplugged earlier today. great interview . congrats to the developers. they were asked a lot of good tough questions by both the hosts and the chat room audience and answered each one brilliantly. i saw several posts online in the shows forums , and on Google+ that several folks were going to try solydxk now and maybe even switch from windows or another distro . way to go!!!

I thought the review was very good, and the interview was even better. I think if SolydXK keeps getting this kind of reviews and keeps getting talked about like this, the sky's the limit.

just checked and the solydxk linux review episode of Linux Action Show that is posted on youtube has over 6000 views and the linux unplugged video with the founders interview has nearly 3000 views as of today. if only 10% of the viewers try or switch to solydxk that means nearly a thousand new users of solydxk. great news!!!
