Pocket operating system

Slax is a modern, portable, small and fast Linux operating system with modular approach and outstanding design. It runs directly from your USB flash drive without installing, so you can carry it everywhere you go in your pocket. Despite its small size, Slax provides nice graphical user interface and wise selection of pre-installed programs, such as a Web browser, Terminal, and more.

Slax is now based on Debian, which gives you the ability to benefit from its entire ecosystem. Tens of thousands of prebuilt packages with applications, all within reach thanks to apt command.

Fund milestones


Major milestones for next Slax versions are tracked and funded through Patreon website and you can accelerate their development with a financial contribution. I am updating Slax regularly on my own to keep it up to date, but some features requested by users are implemented only after they are backed by sufficient amount of patrons.

Every patron can also suggest a new milestone through the Patreon discussion board! :-)
