Absolute Linux 13.0. with IceWM and PCMan

Sep 14, 2009

Paul Sherman has released version 13.0 of his Slackware-based distribution, pulling it level with Slack in the version stakes and relying on the slimline IceWM as window manager.

Absolute Linux builds on Slackware 13.0 so most package-repos are Slackware compatible. The new release brings the slim window manager IceWM and PCMan FM file manager together. The new TXZ format allows more apps on the CD image, including the K3b burn program (QT 4 edition) and a calendar program, amongst others.

Sherman tested the distro on an old Dell Optiplex GX100 with a 500 MHz processor and 128 MB RAM and in his opinion, performance was satisfactory.
