Going way back to the original post
I've tried SaxenOS 2.0 and found it to be slower than molasses running uphill in the wintertime. Their installer is counter-intuitive in places and tends to ask questions that don't need to be asked and doesn't ask questions where they really do need to not make assumptions. At one point it even asks you to click Finish when a process is completed rather than just moving on. SaxenOS installer is a very poor model for VL.
Wolvix 1.1rc2 is impressive. They've done a really nice job with it and it is lightning fast when run from RAM or installed to a hard drive (frugal or full install). It's Xfce 4.4 based and has a nice selection of apps.
I still need to look at Slax6rc6 and GoblinX 2.0.
