SLAX is a small bootable CD containing the Linux operating system. It runs Linux directly from the CD (or USB) without installing. The Live CD is based on the Slackware Linux distribution and uses Unification File System, allowing read-only filesystem to behave as a writable one, saving all changes to memory.
Reviewing 6.0.8 (Nov 24, 2008)
Stable and compatible across a number of hardware platforms, though I would have preferred XFCE over KDE (ala Popcorn) for snappier administration. Files can be saved if Slax is installed and run off a FAT formatted USB flash drive. Loses one star for poor module support as I could only modify one slackware-current package (mozilla-firefox-3.0.4-i686-1) out of ten to work on Slax 6.

Works without problems, I like it :)

Live by default runs in memory and the only way to save stuff is to install it (?). Instead the 'cd' should be able to make a new bootable iso based on your preferences, etc. my 2¢
