KANOTIX 2007 Thorhammer RC6 is released
sidux is what KANOTIX was: a Debian/sid based distribution. Kano has decided that KANOTIX should use Debian/etch and this is the first release with this huge change. Debian/etch is the most stable Linux system avaible. It has less bugs than any other distributions and KANOTIX takes advantage of it and includes backports from popular applications and let's you install uptodate drivers/firmwares with its easy to use scripts. Furthermore, KANOTIX uses an uptodate kernel.Jörg Schirottke (Kano) has released KANOTIX 2007-Thorhammer-RC6
