Sidux on Esteguan

One of the things I didn't like about Dreamlinux was that it was based on etch, which meant old packages.
So I've installed Sidux 2008.3 on Esteguan and it's pretty good. Lightning fast, Xfce by default, really recent packages, and all that good stuff. I'll post further on it later, as I've literally had it running for less than 5 minutes now.


In other news, I have great news regarding Icebuntu. As soon as I get this "crappy" Dell I've been promised (the owner got a MacBook from her new workplace) I'll be able tow work on Icebuntu more.
First thing I'll do is replace Ubiquity with inxtaller. Unfortunately you won't be able to use it with dualboots (until of course it's updated to work with multiple partitions).
I might have to rename Icebuntu because of trademark issues with Canonical, any suggestions?

Frozen Linux?

Wouldn't that imply that it's in a constant state of non-development? :P
