Slax KillBill Edition — first impressions

CLICK reviews SLAX.

Slax is a live CD that I’ve been very anxious to try. Any distro that claims to be light on hardware — yet features the KDE desktop — is something I’ve got to try. I’m beginning to think KDE gets a bad rap. It runs pretty darn well in this distro, as well as in MepisLite. And I think KOffice is a terrific package, with KWrite being one of the best programs out there for writers.

Life’s too short for Linux, or so David Fearon thought until he needed an OS in a rush

This article from PC Pro has some pretty opinionated ideas about which OS is the best to get work done in, and while I don’t agree with many of them, the author does have some nice things to say about DSL and SLAX.

Slax 5.1.4 – Your Pocket OS

May 10th, 2006 Comments off has a thorough review of Slax 5.1.4.

Slax recently released version 5.1.4 of their amazing “pocket os” and since it had been almost a year since our last look, we thought we’d better find out what 5.1.4 was like. Much like its predecessor, it has a whole lot chocked into a small kde-based download. At 192 mb, is it worth the download?
