Absolute Linux is a lightweight Linux distribution that works on older hardware and is based on Slackware Linux. The client is designed for everyday use (internet, multimedia, documents). Absolute Linux's default file and window managers are IceWM and ROX. Some of the programs offered by default include: GIMP, LibreOffice, Firefox, Xfburn, p7zip and qBittorrent. Many script utilities are included with Absolute Linux to aid with configuration and maintenance of the system.
Absolute Linux uses a graphical frontend to XPKGTOOL. Absolute Linux also bundles Gsplat, a Graphical frontend to Slapt-get which works similarly to Apt-get
Absolute is a 64-bit Linux distribution based upon Slackware. It concentrates on "desktop" use so that it is ready for internet, multimedia, document and general home use out of the box. Absolute is lightweight -- meaning 2 things: that it can run on on modest hardware and that the OS interface stays out of your way... but includes the latest software like: Kodi, Inkscape, GIMP, LibreOffice, Google Earth, Google-Chrome, Calibre, etc.
It is version-compatible with Slackware so you can use almost any package from the same version of Slack on Absolute. Development libraries (headers) for everything installed are always included, so you can code and/or build almost anything from source.
