Customized LiveDistro for IOSN

Screenshot at the left is the result of further mucking around with SLAX, the aim of which is to produce a customized LiveDistro for an event. I'm speaking at the IOSN conference next week. My topic is on "Customizing SLAX," similar to what I did for PhilOSC. This time around, there's a bit more focus as the participants have requested for specific applications.

SLAX 5.1.8 forms the base distribution. I'm happy to report that it's quite stable and very usable. Then again, it's not like the previous incarnations weren't.

This time around, I've taken greater care of the user experience. I didn't really customize all that much, but I did change some of the icons.

I've also loaded my favorite applications into the CD:

  • Inkscape
  • The GIMP
  • KDE Edutainment
  • View Your Mind
  • Mplayer
  • Wink

There's also, which I've decided I'm not a fan of, but which made the cut by popular demand.

Finally, some tutorials and presentations.

Total CD size: 450MB, thereabouts.
