salix

home distros software || slack **slackel

Slackware-based, repos have dependency support. KDE/LXDE/Xfce/MATE, and a version with "Ratpoison". One app per task (others available in repos). Gslapt package manager (no auto notice of updates). Good doc! Wizard for codecs/proprietaries. CupZilla web browser. LiLO boot mgr. UEFI supported (ELILO instead of LILO). 64-bit.

May need to disable KDE's DT indexing and visual effects for speed. Btrfs might not boot.
