Lightweight modification of Slackware. Makes configuration and maintenance much easier, has common applications installed and configured. Plays audio CDs, DVDs and movies "out of the box", easy to configure and simple to use.
Uses icewm/rox-filer for window/file managers. Has backup of fluxbox/fox pathfinder.
Installer is same setup as Slackware, with a couple changes. Automatically installs all packages that weight in at 1.7Gb when complete.

   to me this os supports ideals of open source those being the combination of individual applications that come together to form something positive - I believe the name says what it is absolute Linux. -thank you

  Being an old Slackware man, I was excited to try Absolute Linux as it seemed to be tailor made for my taste. I'm also an inveterate IceWM user from way back. The install went without incident and was pretty much like the Slackware install so I was in very familiar territory. However, after it was to configure "X" I got a black screen with no errors and no way to run commands to fix the problems. I booted Ubuntu and reconfigured the Absolute xorg,conf.2627 file using the values that work in Slackware 12 on this very box. When trying to get into X again, the very same problem re-occured. I'm afraid I just didn't have time to pour over error messages and try solutions so I quickly gave up and installed Ubuntu (which gave no X problems whatsoever). I'm disappointed I didn't get to try Absolute out, and likely it was just some hardware issue with this particular setup it didn't like. I'll give it another try soon. Hopefully I'll have a different experience then.
