"Slax: Good evening Mr. Gates, I will be your server this evening."
When Slax is started from a read-only media such as CD/DVD, it keeps all system modifications in memory only, and all the modifications are lost when you reboot. On the other hand, if you run Slax from a writable device such as USB Flash Drive, it stores all changes there, so all your configurations and modifications are restored next time you boot, even if it is on a different computer. This feature is known as Persistent Changes and you can read more about it in a separate chapter.
Slax is a modern, portable, small and fast Linux operating system with a modular approach and outstanding design.
