SparkyLinux is a GNU/Linux distribution created on the "testing" branch of Debian. It features customized lightweight desktops (like E19, LXDE and Openbox), multimedia plugins, selected sets of apps and own custom tools to ease different tasks.
Sparky is in-between the distros that are beginner-friendly and those, that require some amount of Linux knowledge. Beginning Linux users are advised to consult the project forums regarding any issues or doubts.
SparkyLinux ISO images provide a snapshot of the package tree available at the time of their release (Sparky's repository, as well as Debian's Testing repo). While it is possible to upgrade a running ISO to the latest version via APT, you should be aware that running ISOs are placed in RAM, so large upgrades might fail unexpectedly.
The common practise is to upgrade the required packages only (the installer for example, if there's an issue with it) and the rest of the system after installing to disk.
A fast and lightweight GNOME sticky notes app.
