GoblinX is a Live CD distribution based on Slackware and its primary goal is to provide a functional and easy to use desktop, yet beautiful and pleasant to use by users with any level of Linux knowledge alike.
GoblinX uses the concept of modular live CD, allowing you to build your own live CD with only the applications and packages you need.
Once you burn the ISO to a CD and boot it, you’ll see the boot menu which provides a few boot options to choose from.
You can use it as a Live CD but it’s pretty annoying to have to wait for it to read the CD for every action you make and also, there’s the free space available which is basically your RAM and on many systems, that isn’t more than 100-200 MB of space. So if you want to take full advantage of this interesting distribution, my advice is install it to hard disk.
