    Pretty certain SuSE had it included. Others may too...

    ^^ what he said
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    Even Slax... With a lot of other emulation tools. And it is only 200 MB big

    I love slax, though I exaggerated a little bit. It comes as a module for Slax, but if you get the Kill Bill edition it is built in.

    Dammit I love Slax!

    I would guess the reason many dont (although it seems a fair few do ) is because there has yet to be a stable version (although 0.9 is due by the end of spetember - we'll have to wait and see...). Plus, since they're bringing out new releases approximately monthly, any distro it's bundled on is likely to have an out-of-date version, so you'd probably end up downloading it from the site and reinstalling it anyway.
