Latest Slax release needs more time in the oven

Slax is really an awesome OS. 6.0 did have some issues, but as others have said 6.02 has most of those sorted. I suggest that people try it before jumping to conclusions based on a review. Slax really is adaptable to any situation. Linux gurus may not appreciate this, but is modular structure makes it easy to customize a linux system with very little actual working knowledge of linux. I have been using it for a little over a year to slowly make the transition from win. As a long time slax forum user I can tell you that slax has done alot for the cause when it comes to getting win users (like me) to try linux. I was able to get results quickly without a lot of research. These initial sucesses encouraged me to dig deeper into linux. I feel proud to have reached the rank of 'linux noob' (as opposed to 'what is linux?'). The interest in linux that slax has sparked in me will most likely eventually lead to slackware, but I think I will always have a pendrive around w/ the latest slax and my personal customizations, if for no other reason then the fun and shear ease of builing an os that contains just what I want and is portable.
