Description: "We are happy to announce the immediate availability of the collection of Salix Xfce 13.1.2 CD images. These include both 32-bit and 64-bit standard installation images, as well as a 32-bit live image that can be used with an optical disk or a USB drive. Both the standard and the live image can be used for installing Salix Xfce to your hard drive, using a text-mode or a graphical installer respectively. The live image includes, among others, a persistence wizard, that will let the user keep changes, including extra installed packages and personalization between different live sessions. LiveClone is another tool specific to the live image - using it users will be able to easily roll their own custom build of the Salix Xfce Live."

Pros: Extremely fast and stable, attractive desktop, good wireless support
Cons: None at the moment

Salix has an attractive community forum, knowledgeable staff, and supportive membership. The Xfce version is lightweight and very fast. I run it on USB and installed to HDD on a MSI Wind Netbook. Salix boots fast and connects fast, making it ideal for browsing the web right out of the box. Updating is a snap with the Gslapt package manager. Installation was no problem and I am currently triple-booting WinXP, Lubuntu, and Salix on the netbook. Highly recommended.
