Slackware, Slax I chose Minislack because of the low requirements (running fine on my Pentium II - 400 MHz with 256 Mb RAM, 32 Mb swap, on a 1.5 Gb harddrive partition - I recommend 2 Gb, though).

MiniSlack *is* Slackware.

No, Slackware *is* Slackware.

I switched to MiniSlack because it gave me a much smaller system without having to fuss with all the package selections

You are kidding, aren't you? It requires a minute, two at most, to select your package install using the menu option of the full Slackware installation. This is a 'fuss'?

In short, this is just a "mini" version of Slackware (thus the name). If you like Slack but want a sleeker but fully compatible version, try MiniSlack. I'm running my home webserver on it right now.

Why not just perform a more selective install using the Slackware install options? Thus you can create your own "mini" Slack based the real thing.
