But that IS aptosid ... it is not a distribution in the sense that AVLinux is,
it is a way to install debian sid.
They do three very useful things for someone who wants to use debian sid on
their system ..
1/ They package a live install disk with, in my experience at least, an install
system that seems to deal with a wide range of new hardware very well.
2/ They build a custom kernel and maintain a set of bugfixes and an update
warning system to achieve 1/ and try to ensure that apt-get dist-upgrade can be
done safely to keep the installation up-to-date, using either their kernel or a
current or fairly recent debian one.
3/ They maintain a good manual and website so that 1/ and 2/ are useful to the user.
How you configure sid after that is up to you.
AVlinux does something else entirely, they configure and maintain a debian based
system geared towards multimedia, staying quite close to a standard debian
system (so it remains very flexible).
That is another big job done for the audio user, and by most reports they do it
