Pros: 64Bit and 32bit isos
Cons: None

Has everything from Gtk-YouTube Viewer to Libre Office to Iceweasel to Adobe Flash Player and choice of running Debian Wheezy,Testing,and Unstable repos during install process, your choice of course. Everything fits on CD.

Live CD boot cheats via F keys on live grub screen. Uses Legacy grub. Installer simple and easy to use. One can make it look as pretty as one wants with Fluxbox, Icewm, JWM, Window Managers. Dillo and Links 2 Browser for low ram and cpu computers with a i486 kernel with the 32bit cd sized Full iso download. Comes in 3 iso sizes. Full, Base, and Core.

smxi,inxi,,, just to name a few command line scripts not seen in other distros. SpaceFM file manager also. Plugin scripts for SpaceFM from Ignorant Gurus Blog.

This distro gets better every release cycle. 13.1 is the best yet IMHO.

Pros: Superb Debian based live installable distro.
Cons: None

I use 'base' mainly because I need a web browser, music player, and a movie player - all included in the 'base' distro, plus much more, yet only about 1.5gb installation.

N.B. The 'base' version has been dropped in 13.2, so this 13.1 is the latest, however, install it and just 'upgrade' to bring it right upto date.
