Slackware, Slax "Zenwalk 3 is an operating system based on Patrick Volkerding's Slackware GNU/Linux distribution, version 10.2. The entire operating system fits on a single CD, and stays true to what the author calls the 'Zen philosophy'. This philosophy, as it has been coined, refers to Zenwalk's policy of including one application per task. I've had a few problems with Slackware and Slackware-related systems in the past, but Zenwalk has alleviated all of my stress regarding those issues. Here's why."

One more major weakness: while ZenLive does mount NTFS volumes, it forgets to specify "nls=utf8" in mount options, therefore files and directories with localized names are not displayed, which is not good at all :-( Also, it would be nice to have a non-default option to enable writing on NTFS volumes using ntfs-3g - preferably using a friendly GUI.

One more nicety: the included version of GParted seems to have more capabilities than Ubuntu's one, including creating and resizing NTFS partitions.
