Description: "Salix LXDE 13.37 has been officially released. This release is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. For everyone that has used our previous LXDE releases there are no surprises here. The application selection has stayed the same for the most part, with all applications being upgraded to newer versions. Important changes in this release are the inclusion of Sourcery, our new graphical tool for managing and installing packages from SlackBuilds, which has been developed from scratch for Salix and also the replacement of SCIM with IBus as the default input platform for Chinese, Japanese, etc."
Keywords: Slackware-based Sourcery

Pros: Very light
Cons: LXDE can be difficult to configure

This is actually the lightest Salix, even compared with the Fluxbox version, and would just about run in 128MB.

Abiword and Gnumeric replace LibreOffice, the browser is Midori, and Whaaw is used for the media player. I found Midori a bit slow, but the other software worked well as in other Salix versions. LXDE has few configuration tools, and is not as well documented as Fluxbox, so it's best suited to those who donít need to do much configuration, or who donít mind hunting for the right file to alter. I never did find out how to set sub-pixel smoothing...
