Special Information

Porteus (originally called Slax Remix in the first releases) is an operating system based on Slackware and modified Linux Live Scripts.

As a result of using the scripts it does not require installation and can be run from fixed and removable media, such as a USB flash drive or compact disc.

Porteus provides versions for x86 (32-bit) based systems as well as for x86_64 (64-bit) based systems.
