The first thing that caught my eye about the Distrowatch announcement on the release of Slax 4.1.4 was that it included KDE 3.3 which had only been out a few weeks. I wanted to try out KDE 3.3 and a live CD like Slax is a great way to do it, so I went over to the Slax website to download the ISO. Whilst I was at the website I noticed the Slax slogan "Slax - your pocket OS." This got me thinking, can you really survive with just a live CD (and a small one at that) as your only distro, in a 'Mandrake Move" type way? I decided to challenge myself to try for a week.
