Absolute Linux is a light-weight modification of Slackware Linux. It includes several utilities that make configuration and maintenance easier and it has many common desktop and Internet applications installed and configured with tight integration of menu
Linux Release Details:
Absolute Linux 11.1 Beta 3 is available
11.1b3 has been released. Many changes, most small, but some of real importance. Kernel masquerades as 'hugesmp', but it is a recompiled 'genericsmp' with several file systems built in (ReiserFS, ext3, NTFS, VFAT, ISO9660, UDF and USB mass storage). This kernel configuration was chosen to lighten things up, but still make swapping devices as simple as possible. No patches were made to the kernel. Several bug fixes and loads of recompiling; SQLite, pysqlite, K3b and many, many more. Some scripts were updated, including the alsaconf sound setup utility....

Kernel masquerades as the hugesmp, but it is a recompiled genericsmp with several FS built in (reiser, ext3, ntfs, vfat, iso9660, udf -- and usb mass storage.) This kernel config was chosen to lighten things up, but still make swapping devices as simple as possible. NO PATCHES were made to the kernel.

Several bug fixes and loads of recompiling; sqlite, pysqlite, k3b and many, many more. Some scripts were updated, including the alsaconf sound setup utility (needed only when auto-detection fails) pAgenda was fixed for wxWidgets update, and a couple new utilities I am rather proud of...

1) Font setting -- "system-wide", changes font in GTK, icewm (menus, taskbar and titles) as well as in Firefox. No restart necessary.

2) Screen resolution and refresh rate adjustable with nice, quick, simple utility. Does this on the fly and settings can be saved for persistence to xorg.conf automatically, if you run the utility as root.
