About:
Absolute is a lightweight Slackware Linux derivative distribution that uses
an Icewm, ROX-Filer window/file manager combination. It comes with Firefox,
The GIMP, MPlayer, K3B, kTorrent, Gaim, Frostwire, Gftp, StarDict, Skype,
and many other titles all set up and ready to run. Several utilities are
included to ease configuration and management. It is compatible with all
Slackware 11 packages and can be installed just like a Slackware disk,
except that you cannot choose which packages to install or remove, as it
just installs everything.  

Changes:
Dillo, Midnight Commander, and ggradebook were added. Several updates were
made to the applications, including an upgrade of GIMP to version 2.4.0rc3
and an update to XDM for a nicer graphical login if chosen from the new
icewm settings menu.
