 Slax Live CD 5.0.6 review

So many distributions and so little time. This one sounds like a good Live CD choice.

"Slax is a live CD distribution based on the venerable and time-tested Slackware Linux. Its claim to fame is twofold. First, despite containing the KDE desktop and many common KDE applications, it fits nicely on a 185MB mini CD. (There's also a version for 128MB USB flash memory drives that uses the XFCE desktop.) Second, it's easy to "remix" Slax by adding downloadable modules for new programs and features. Once booted, the CD will automatically load the new features."
