SLAX is a version of the popular Linux operating system, which has the particular feature of being run without prior installation. With this programme you can access the Linux world without making big changes to your computer structure.
SLAX works from the CD-ROM drive, so it can be used in computers without a hard drive. It can also be hosted in the RAM memory of the PC, letting the CD-ROM drive free for other use (file copying, listening to music, etc.).
SLAX is portable, so it can be taken anywhere keeping its configuration. At the same time, it is compatible with all types of modules, so it is possible to enjoy programmes without installing them.
This operating system offers the possibility of saving all the changes made or the added modules, avoiding the need of configuring it every time it is used.
