    I'm trying out slax for the first time now, and I gotta say I like it so far. Simple and fast.

    The slax popcorn edition goes on one of those small sub-200 Mb cd's. Which means it fits into any pocket. Ultimate geekdom achieved

    Minislack is a Linux Distribution, Slax is a Linux live CD

    Minislack cannot be compared to Slax.

    Minislack cannot be used to boot from CD, it must be installed.

    Until There's a Minislack live-CD, Slax is the good choice to test Linux, or travel-work.

    But if you're searching for performance, and a true installable Operating System, no doubt that Minislack is much, much faster and functional than any live-CD around.

    No comparison for me : two projects -> different goals

    I might make a live CD for mini Slack one day (if foot print is not too large). Will post a link in this thread when its done.

    how would minslack go on a pentium-mmx-level cryrix processor@233mhz with 64mb of ram, 3gb hdd and a 2mb video card?

    or would it be better with minislax?

    It should run fine. I've seen weaker compo's using it without problems . Furthermore, both distro's are based on slax, so it will depend on your other preferences which you will pick .
