Slax manis banget

Udah pernah denger slax belum. Distro ini bisa dikatakan sebagai pahlawan live-cd berbasis slackware. Yap karena dengan script yang dibuat developer slax banyak bermunculan berbagai livecd lain seperti wolvix. Slax juga memberikan fitur yang memungkinkan anda menambah aplikasi walaupun dalam kondisi berjalan pada mode livecd. Fitur ini didapatkan dengan cara menambahkan module yang dapat didownload dari situs resminya ataupun anda bisa membuat sendiri.

Module yang disediakan oleh developer slax sangat banyak dan dibedakan menjadi beberapa kategori (total ada 15 kategori). Memang slax sangat menyenangkan, mulai dari documentasi yang baik dan sederhana, tampilan yang (menurut saya) manis dan simple ditambah fitur yang menarik.

ini hasil comot dari documentasinya:

Slax 6 is small

Slax has participated in development of so called sqlzma patches; the code implements 7-zip compression (LZMA) into squashfs filesystem. Moreover, squashfs evolved by the time and it now supports bigger block sizes than before. The combination of these two enhancements makes Slax one of the best-compressed operating systems in the history.

All Slax modules are much smaller than any other compressed packages available nowadays for all other Linux distributions, while the speed of decompression remains usually faster than reading the full data from disk.

Slax 6 is portable

Thanks to the AUFS filesystem, the read-only part of Slax (system data and modules) is overlayed by a writable filesystem. You can modify all areas of the filesystem in Slax without any restrictions. Your changes to the read-only parts are transparently copied to the writable branch and stored in memory or in a persistent directory on your disk or even flash drive. Slax is designed to autodetect whether it runs from a writable media, and if that is detected, Slax will save all your changes there automatically.

In Slax, you are not limited to just a persistent home directory – the whole root filesystem is fully writable, so we talk about ‘persistent changes’ (rather than about ‘persistent home’, known from other live distributions). You can modify /bin/bash the same way like ~/kderc.

Slax 6 is feature rich

XWindow system, KDE desktop with K-Office, Internet browsing, e-Mail, Instant messaging, CD/DVD burning and ripping, Audio and Video encoding, Multimedia players, all and even more is included in Slax.

Slax 6 is multilingual

There are official releases of Slax in 28 different languages, including Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Nynorsk, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Sayang kelihatannya versi bahasa indonesia belum ada.

Coba ini review slax terbaru, tentunya pada tanggal 17 april 2008.
