about Slax Jun 2011

I have used puppy linux for a while, but this one I find much better. Slax recognized my graphics and correct maximum resolution out of the box, on my laptop. Its a great mini linux that I use on my USB sticks. Although I could not get it to install normally, from the tar file, I used the CD version with Unetbootin, and it worked quite well.
