Hello Linux Community. I was wondering if any of you know a Debian distro that comes with the latest apps,sofware and kernel! Other than pure Debian Sid.

You can try Siduction which is based upon debian sid, one of the mods here is a core member of the dev team for that distro.

Thanks mfillpot! I have heard Sid can break easily though! I was hoping to find something that is based of maybe debian testing or stable but comes with up to date software within there repos!

The stability of debian is based upon their conservative approach to software, they take a while to test software before pushing the updates which is why they are known for their stability. Up-to-date software will only limit the stability.

I did check distrowatch for debian testing based distros at (http://distrowatch.com/search.php?ostype=All&category=All&origin=All&basedon=Debian+%28Testing%29&notbasedon=None&desktop=All&architecture=All&status=Active) and found that antix and pardus are based off of debian testing, I have heard good things about both of those but have not tested them myself.
