ImagineOS seems to be a one-man distro. This can work (as in AntiX) but only if the developer limits their work by staying close to their source.
My first problem was that X would not run on my hardware. It turned out to be an upstream problem that has affected several distros, but the solution was found at the Debian forum: the ImaginOS developer could not help.
The live CD had a few problems (e.g. flv files would not play, despite the codecs being installed). The installer was a different matter. It is very basic: there is no opportunity to create /home. There is no help: a couple of options were unexplained and one remained a mystery. Although I created a user (not required), it still created another one, called imagine. The Lilo installer did not seem to have an option to install to a partition, and I did not risk putting it in the MBR. When I tried to boot using my existing Grub, I could not start vmlinuz.
There are two good Slackware derivatives, Salix and Vector. Despite the hard work and enthusiasm of its creator, ImagineOS is no competitor.
