Well I am not the Dev but they decided to write a installer from scratch, they did not use Debian's installer due to it not being as user friendly. As to not using Ubiquity I would think it would be more of a pain to port it to Debian that write there own from scratch.

See I don't think that was the issue. The latest beta release of Aurora (formerly EEEbuntu) is now built on Debian as well and it uses the good old Ubuntu-like installer still...


The Aurora project are building there own installer called Exogenesis
I'm the Pinguy OS developer.

DONATE TO PINGUY OS or show some love on

Perhaps Mint and Aurora should hop in bed and swap some code. :)

On a side note, I see Sidux has been resurrected as Aptosid.  I don't know what all that was about but I personally think the name "Sidux" was much cooler.
