Description: "Puppy Linux 5.3.3 'Slacko' is an updated release of the recent 5.3.1. It has binary compatibility with Slackware Linux 13.37, which simply means that it is a Puppy built with packages from the Slackware, Salix and Slacky repositories. The main variant has been upgraded with Linux kernel 3.1.10 compiled with Aufs layered file system support, in the typical Puppy manner. There is also a PAE variant to cater for machines with large amounts of RAM. Both ISO images have SCSI boot support. The SeaMonkey 2.9.1 suite is the default browser and email suite but Firefox, Chromium, Opera, Netsurf, Iron, Dillo and Links are only a few clicks away."

Pros: 130MB with browser included
Cons: ??? nothing !

Thin Slacko is the best puppy in my opinion because the most common appliactions are available, browser included for around 130MB, well in the puppy's spirit. Users so can add some of their favorites keeping Slacko ability to run fully in RAM on 528MB computers.
