Slax 7.0 Preview
Tomáš Matějíček has announced the availability of a public preview release of Slax 7.0, a Slackware-based live CD with KDE 4 in under 180 MB: "So here it is. A small lightweight KDE, recompiled with as few dependencies as possible. I've partially completed my battle with the KDE desktop environment. There is a lot of work waiting in the queue, since there are no applications yet except Konsole; however, it is ready for wider public testing. I am convinced it was worth the effort. Both 32-bit and 64-bit variants are ready for testing. I've configured four workspaces. Try to switch between them using your mouse - simply move your mouse pointer to the very top left of the screen. No clicking needed. You should see the effect." Here is the full release announcement with screenshots. Download (MD5): slax-7.0-kde4-2012-10-20-i486.iso (177MB), slax-7.0-kde4-2012-10-20-x86_64.iso (183MB).
