Parsix = Debian testing + selected Ubuntu 8.04 backports + some extra tools (e.g. from Kanotix), adapted + a newer kernel + own theme + debian-multimedia.org repositories added by default.
This is why Parsix had to update its kernel independently of Debian testing (and it did, watch for Bug #84).
The advantages: "rolling-release Debian testing", reasonably stable and with newer packages than Etch (Etch doesn't even have Claws Mail), even newer packages in a few selected cases (because of rebuilding from an unreleased yet Ubuntu Hardy), a good default selection of packages, some extra advantages for Iranian users.
Disadvantages: theoretically less stable than Etch, theoretically less stable than Debian testing, possible inherited issues from Ubuntu Hardy. (In my case, I had to forcefully downgrade Brasero from 0.7.1 to 0.6.1 from Debian testing.)
Important Notice About Parsix Reporitories
Ramon r1 introduced the continent apt reporitory along with the official supported Parsix repository. The Continent repository consists of the whole Debian testing archive minus the official Parsix repository packages. Note that the continent repository for Parsix Viola is frozen now and will not receive updates from Debian except critical fixes. This is a new release policy to make Parsix more stable like approach. The Continent repository will be continued to be updated for the next Parsix release code name 'Boss Skua' and will be frozen before the final release of it, and so on.

The next ISO will be called Glacix, and it will be uploaded probably within a month.
