SolydK is a Debian based distribution with the KDE desktop. This is the big brother of the two and has all the bells and whistles.

After burning the ISO to USB or DVD, you can try SolydK live before you decide to install.

SolydK does not need to be reinstalled each time an update is released. You don’t have to reinstall, ever!
The update manager sits in your system tray and signals you whenever there is an update available.


You can download the ISO directly from our server, by torrent, or mirrors. After the download, verify that the md5sum corresponds with the md5sum shown in the right pane of this page.
