Wolvix (Discontinued) was a desktop-oriented Linux distribution based on Slackware, mainly targeted at home users, and strives to provide a balance between everyday computing tasks, creativity, work and enjoyment.[clarification needed] It features the Xfce desktop environment, along with a wide selection of development, graphics, multimedia, network and office applications.
Wolvix is based on Slackware, and uses the Xfce desktop environment by default (Fluxbox, LXDE and Openbox are readily available as well, as are other environments through unofficial repositories). It was initially designed to be a Live Distro but now has automatic installers allowing users to install to a Hard Drive, USB device and other devices. For a while Wolvix only included GTK+ applications (Opera now comes pre-installed), and utilizes slapt-get for package management. The developers claim acceptable performance can be achieved on a machine running a 700 MHz CPU with 256 MB of RAM.
