Current version:

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. The Live user is “solydxk” and has the same password as root: solydxk.

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 directly from our server, by torrent, or mirrors. After the download, verify that the signature corresponds with the provided file.
