DeepStyle – a fork of the distribution from the Ukrainian development team. Created to improve Ukrainian and Russian localization. It was actively developed during 2004-2013 and later evolved into the SlackBoost project, a repository of optional packages for the parent distribution.

Compared to its parent distribution, Ukrainian and Russian locales, translations, spell check packages, Cyrillic fonts, etc. were added.

The first public release candidate of the DeepStyle-1.0rc1 distribution appeared on March 18, 2005. The first public release of DeepStyle-1.0 appeared on July 28, 2005 and was based on Slackware 10.1.

During 2005-2013, distribution releases were released regularly (from 1.0 to 5.14.0, which were based on Slackware versions from 10.0 to 14.0, respectively. Starting with the DeepStyle-3.0 “Gemini” version (September 25, 2007), the AMD64 architecture was also supported.

Subsequently, the project’s architecture was revised due to the difficulty of supporting the Slackware fork. The project was reworked and instead of an actual Slackware fork, it took the form of a repository with optional packages and a new name — SlackBoost, which was announced on the project website on February 24, 2015.

The system provides an option to choose desktop environments and window managersto be installed, such as: KDE, Xfce, WindowMaker, BlackBox, FluxBox, AfterStep, IceWM, Openbox, LXDE.
