Pros: Ease of install and use
Cons: some of the programs do not work

If live CD distro's are your thing, this one's every bit as good as the next. It loads and detects your hardware just about as well as slax does. It's size makes it very desireable, and can fit onto a smaller CD if your geeky heart desires. It is very streamlined and come with fluxbox as opposed to KDE or Gnome. The bells and whistles croud may be better off with slax. That being said, those who are trying their hand at building their own distro will probably enjoy this one a lot more.

DSL is small, but dynamite comes in small packages. Easy, powerful, accessible, and fun -- sounds like some of the things that got you interested in the Linux revolution to begin with.
