SolydXK is a Debian-based Linux distribution that offers a choice of two desktops: Xfce and KDE. It is a very new Linux OS, but do not push this new kid aside assuming stability and performance need a lot of maturing. In fact, SolydXK is already a solid and very impressive distro. It has more polish and smoother performance than many older Linux OS counterparts. Released in late February by "Schoelje," a key developer of two discontinued desktop options within the Linux Mint distro, SolydXK picks up where the Linux Mint line leaves off.
