[Image: sidux-2009-03-Has-Linux-Kernel-2-6-31-6-...-3-2-2.jpg]

Stefan Lippers-Hollmann proudly announced earlier today (November 11th) the immediate availability of the sidux 2009-03 Linux-based operating system (codename "Mamos"). The new release ships with the ultimate Linux kernel and the breathtaking KDE 4.3.2 desktop environment. sidux is a full-featured Live CD based on Debian Sid, with a special focus on hard disk installations, a clean upgrade path within Sid and supplementary hardware and software support. This is also the first release of sidux without the KDE 3.x and Qt 3.x packages!

"For 'Μώμος,' development had to take massive upstream changes for sysvinit/ insserv,— and device detection, as well as sidux infrastructure changes into account, but also concentrates on furthering the KDE4 integration into sidux and upgrading to kernel 2.6.31. Subsequently it is the first sidux release to ship without KDE3 or qt3 packages. [...] Our special thanks go to the sidux art team and especially all mirror hosters for their efforts regarding sidux. In particularly our thanks go to the Hetzner Online AG for upgrading the server hardware of Following this we would like to welcome the mirror hosted by Cybermirror in Düsseldorf, Germany." - Stefan Lippers-Hollmann said in the official release announcement.

The new version of the Linux kernel included in sidux 2009-03 provides initial support for USB 3.0 devices, and for the Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi sound card.
