Review: Sidux Linux 2007.4 "Eros"

I was made aware of this distribution by a reader of the site. I endeavored to see how blessed the distribution really was.
And TechieMoe found that:


I didn't run into any stability issues and the inclusion of multimedia support was nice. I also liked that it synced up with the official Debian repositories. MP3 support will rule out any Debian diehards, but I imagine they would just use vanilla Sid instead.

The lack of Java out of the box was annoying and would force me to install it on my own to do work (I have a dev tools CD for this purpose). It's not a show-stopper, but still an annoyance.

The distro would benefit from some overall visual cleanup, particularly in the menus. There are a lot of redundant menu options from KDE that are covered by Sidux Control Center.
