Current version: 201506

SolydX is a Debian based distribution with the Xfce desktop. It intends to be as light-weight as possible without giving up any of the expected functionality.

After burning the ISO to USB or DVD, you can try SolydX “Live” before you decide to install.

SolydX 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 by torrent, directly from our server, or mirrors. After the download, verify that the md5sum corresponds with the md5sum shown in the right pane.
