Publisher's Description

Slax is a modern, portable, small and fast Linux operating system with modular approach and outstanding design. It runs directly from your USB flash drive without installing, so you can carry it everywhere you go in your pocket. Despite its small size, Slax provides nice graphical user interface and wise selection of pre-installed programs, such as a Web browser, Terminal, and more.

Slax is now based on Debian, which gives you the ability to benefit from its entire ecosystem. Tens of thousands of prebuilt packages with applications, all within reach thanks to apt command.

Great for my usage as a lightweight easy to modify kiosk. Just checking if the correct version of 6.2.0 is available from the download link? See http://www.tomas-m.com/blog/

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.

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¢

At one time you could save Slax changes to a file server. However if you are going to run LiveCD's I found Puppy, Slax, DSL and Wolvix (games) to be the easiest. However the slickest trick is to use a small app Wubi.

If you have to stick to liveCD's there are over 300 versions at.. http://www.livecdlist.co...&sort=Name&sm=0

Newbie here. I have tried Slax, the previous version, but was not able to figure out how to keep any changes I made. After rebooting, none of the changes I did would keep, such as changing the wallpaper, putting in bookmarks, downloading and installing a program. Does slax do this? Puppy Linux does do this and I don't have any problems saving things on it.

Thanks for any information.

@oubeaver:
I think you have not understood his question

@sjc001:
SLAX Standard comes only with KDE & Fluxbox.
SLAX Popcorn comes with XFCE & Fluxbox
SLAX Frodo comes without a X Window System
There are no versions of SLAX that come with GNOME. If you want a Slackware based live CD distro running GNOME try GoblinX:

Great little bootable OS. Always nice.

sjc001: You still have no idea about these types of OSes. Just stop posting comments please.

Does this come in any other desktop besides KDE, like Gnome?

This is a great program, or O/S! A few years ago I tried Ubuntu and didn't have any luck with booting it up and being able to delete or copy files, with this Slax, I was able to do it without any problems!

It worked great on a brand new Compaq Presario A9000 (core2duo, 2GB memory). that has Vista on it. The sound and graphic etc. all worked the first time booting it from a bootable CD image.

Excellent!
