Linux is back on track.
Slax is a bootable CD based on Slackware Linux but with a wide variety of preinstalled software and a graphical user interface as well as recovery tools for systems administrators.

Slax is free, however, you can order a 16GB flash drive with Slax preinstalled for $25. That's sweet.
