How-Tux – a Slackware based Linux distribution built using the Live-Linux scripts. How-Tux is created with modules, in the same way as Slax is done.

The distribution is shipped with a system installer translated into Italian and most applications localized for Italian speakers.
How-Tux features GNOME desktop environment, suite, and several multimedia and graphics applications.

The project was made in Salento by two Italian programmers.
They said that it is: “stable and versatile, suitable for everyone, from children to the most savvy users” and is characterized by “a constantly updated software and, of course, FREE!
It is one of the first (if not the first) Slackware-based distro to use as default Window Manager Gnome 2.12 (and for this we must thank the Gware team). But to learn more about the software included in this distro we refer to section Features of our site The installer is almost entirely in Italian (translation by Eros Palnerti, Antonio Perrone and Fabio Viola)”.
