Maybe you got confused by Slax. There are two branches of that, one based on Debian, and the other (more recent) which is based on Slackware v15. Porteus and Slax (ie. Slackware-based) do have some similarities.

Hello everyone, I have loved personal computing since I was a child. Started on Radio Shack TRS-80 (later Tandy) Color Computer 2, then steadily moved up to Tandy 1000 with MS-DOS, to a computer with VGA graphics, then Windows98, WindowsXP 32-bit, Windows7 64-bit and... my first Linux distro which came on the coverdisc of Computer Music Magazine, an early version of Ubuntu. A bit later I was able to download Debian Wheezy and Ubuntu Studio "Precise Pangolin" both 32-bit; was stuck with those two after my computer's HDD crashed and was forced to boot from external USB drives. The whole computer became unusable five years back.

Six months ago I regained Internet access which allowed me to get away from the Windows yoke again. I've been distro-hopping. My first experience with anything related to Slackware was the Puppy based on it. Didn't like it, especially ROX file manager. I'm using a laptop with a very slow HDD which means I could have only one OS besides Windows. Desired it to be Slackware but failed in two attempts. So it's a good thing I discovered Porteus, not just as a compromise. Finally I found a distro that I could recommend! :beer:

Long live the Slack! Getting closer to 30th anniversary like no other!
