    Take heed, cause I'm a lyrical poet, my distro reviews are leet in case you didn't know it. Wait, wrong song. I mean I always listen to your feedback. It's just that sometimes it takes me months to get there, busy little bee hive that I am. So, here it is, a review of Salix 14.1 Xfce 64-bit edition, a Slackware-based distribution, covering two installation attempts - a failed one on a quad-boot laptop with Intel grapgics SSD and a successful one in a virtual machine, covering installation setup details, desktop look & feel, package management & updates, multimedia playback and codecs - Flash, MP3, HD video, applications, utilities, printing, resource usage, stability, customization, and more. Have fun.

    Salix is everything a modern distro should be, IMO. Nothing fancy, no complicated setup, it just works. And this is all the more impressive given the size of the dev team.
