Pros: Great modular Live OS with persistence. Small/compact OS. Boots fast, runs fast. Great to carry your own OS on a USB drive. I use version 3.1 32-bit, so it will run on just about any desktop or laptop PC made in the last 15 years -- as long as the PC will boot from USB. Choice of desktops: KDE, LXQT, MATE or my personal favorite XFCE. Polished UI -- looks great. Works great. Choice of recent versions of Firefox, Chrome or Opera, or all three. Additional choices: Libre Office, ABIWord and Skype.
Cons: Beyond the options above, no packages easily available.
Have been using it for almost 60 days now.
It's somewhat tricky to begin with, I've installed it 4 times.
I like the Xfce version the most. KDE is okej, but I hate windows 8 and 10 and this feels a bit like that-
MATE and cinnamon were nor working as I would like, but Xfce did. I guess you have to try them all.
pros: really nice and easy, once you get the feeling for how the modules work. Slax brought to perfection!
cons: I miss a photo editor by default. I know, I can creat a module, but that shouldn't be too big to include by default.
Ok! So I'm new to slackware, but did it.
I'm using the MATE version on a 8Gb usb.
I kind of like it! Bring it with me everywhere and use it where I want.
Still kind of raw, but I'm getting used to it.
Pros: Portability, taking my system where I go. Easy to configure the desktop. If your planning to use it, I would recommend formating the usb as ext2/3 or 4 and have a swap partition as well. Fat32 only gave me headache.
Cons: Lacks a lot of the stuff, but hej it's portable. Maybe I do need to get used to slackware as well. Or find a Ubuntu alternative.
