For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Just as Debian has user-friendly distros such as Mint and Ubuntu, and Arch has Manjaro, Slackware has Salix.

It's super user-friendly. Perfectly refined XFCE that is gorgeous. A variety of GTK-based apps exclusive to this distro, making it easier to administer your system.

Uses slapt-get, similar to apt-get/aptitude with dependencies, but installs packages meant to be used on Slackware systems.

If init matters to you, this only uses good old sysvinit to manage services, so no systemd whatsoever.

Salix 15.0 is a success so far. You can even get XFCE 4.18 backports installed if you wish, without running a -current version of Slackware (like Slackel), just for that.

Hi, I have used Slackware for several years and now I have installed this distribution derived from Slackware, it has a great software installer very similar to Debian and at the same time is not as overloaded with software as Slackware, it is a highly recommended option, light, stable and very fast.
It is easier to install than slackware, with a good choice of software, you can't ask for more. Highly recommended to give a new life to old computers that because of its limitations do not move other distros heavier, this one feels light and stable at the same time...

Salix OS 15 is quite a stable, fast and lightweight distribution that run smoothly on older PCs as well as newer ones.

It comes with an out-of-the-box refined and polished Xfce desktop that rivals desktops such as Mate and/or Cinnamon in terms of aesthetics and ease of use while keeping a small resources footprint.

The installation on HDD is relatively straight forward and the selection of per-installed out-of-the box programs such as Libreoffice, Firefox, etc..is well thought after, including the necessary utilities to tweak and monitor the system.

I'd like to thank the authors of this accomplished distribution that I personally have up and running on few desktops and laptops at home.
