A Linux distribution based on Debian sid/unstable (or testing)

This distribution is geared toward ease of use. Included applications are selected to be simple and easy for the user. The attempt is to provide a system as easy to install and use as Ubuntu or Linux Mint, only based on the more robust parent, Debian.

Available in 32bit only.

Provided Linux image is i486, for general compatibility. If you have a modern processor then it is highly encouraged to install linux-image-686-pae available in repository.

new release, 12.03 (using systemd)

Work has continued, the next version should be available before the end of august. Initial version will be i686, 64bit should fallow shortly thereafter. Update manager WILL be fixed in this update. Also it is likely to use a new installer written by Ivailo Monev (a.k.a. SmiL3y).

current bugs of interest (12.03):
must manually set hostname correctly
update manager will not work due to lsb-release not reading as debian.
