Slax – a Slackware based Linux distribution with a modular approach and outstanding design.
Slax is small, portable and fast operating system with a wide collection of pre-installed software for daily use, including a well organized graphical user interface and useful recovery tools for system administrators. The modular approach gives the ability to include any other software in Slax easily. There is no need to install and no need to configure, it simply works. Slax doesn’t contain any package manager, new packages can be added to the system as pre-configured modules, downloaded from the project page.
Slax was under development between 2002 and 2009 (up to version 6.1.2), and then between 2012 and 2013 (up to version 7.0.8).
Up to version 2.x, Slax name was “Slackware-Live”.
The project developer is Tomáš Matějíček.
In November 16, 2017 the developer released new version of Slax 9.2.1, which is based on packages of Debian stable “Stretch”.
