Pros: Modular
Cons: not really multilingual



It is a small distribution simlpe to understand - which means also suitable for beginners. It can be used like a LiveCD.

What fascinated me was that I could select at the homepage the modules I was interested in and got them directly included in the iso-File.
Easier it can't be anymore.
