After three years, Slax Linux reborn with Version 7.0

For those who aren’t familiar with it already, 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.

Version 7.0 includes the newest Linux kernel along with the KDE4 desktop, the GCC compiler, and “lots of other stuff,” all in a download that’s just 210MB or so in size.

Slax is also available in more than 50 languages and includes translations, keyboard mappings, fonts, and system settings for each localization.
