Description

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.

    the most interesting its the "editions", its a good Debian testing just ready to use for users, and comes with some important (not noted) software as the codecs.. the desktop appearance are good enought in each flavors.. but the support ahve a lack of response..

    Sorry but SL could be way better than Mint. great packages but still has a buggy installer. 2.2 had good nvidia support. 3.3 stuck on nouveau (horrible with nv34 cards). Turns off sound chip when idle, a bad feature. I used many linuxes since 1998. Very promising but needs better quality control more testers. I've tested 2.1, 2.2, 3.3 Very smart setup and collection of apps. I voted 3 stars to counter the 5 stars.
