What is SolydXK Linux?

SolydXK is a Dutch Linux operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux. It aims to be simple to use, providing an environment that is stable, secure, and ideal for small businesses, non-profit organizations and home users. SolydXK focuses on stability, security and ease of use and will help new users make the transition from Windows to Linux easier. SolydX and SolydK are Debian-based distributions with the Xfce and KDE desktops respectively. The project started as an unofficial variant of Linux Mint's "Debian" edition with KDE as the default desktop, but it was later given its own identity as SolydK. SolydX was added after Linux Mint dropped its Debian-based flavour that used the Xfce desktop.
