    After three years, Slax Linux is back on track.

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

    Download x86 ISO

    It's an OS. Just a different environment where you can do anything (programming, browsing the web, watching movies, listening to music, word processing ... anything). Like all other Linux distributives, it has a live cd/usb version. You just boot from it without installing and see what it can do. You won't lose anything. When you remove the media and reboot you can go back to your Windows.

    It has all network drivers out of the box and many other drivers as well. If some drivers are missing it will notify you and download them for you.

    Install it on a usb stick and boot to the usb stick or to a disc and boot to the disc. :toast: It's meant to be carried around in your pocket. I would use it as more of a tool then a full OS. It's a striped down version of linux @ a little over 200mb. So, you can load only the software you want to use. :toast: It will auto load all your drivers.

    I use it with no persistence and loaded to RAM for quick more or less anonymous surfing to sites of questionable character. LOL!
