You said that Slax is Debian as of version 9, and I am on Debian Jessie, which 
is 8.x (8.10 with upgrades, I believe). And I am still learning Debian. I 
used to run various 'buntus (mostly with KDE or TDE), and only in the past 
couple months have I got my Debian system to look and run almost exactly like 
my old Kubuntu (KDE 3.5) desktop. 

I am still learning Debian myself, but I'm pretty good at figuring out stuff 
in a Debian-type system, so maybe I can do a little research here. 

Once I have my desktop set up (I still want to change to Devuan), then maybe I 
will give Slax a try. I don't have a flash drive to spare, and I am too broke 
to splurge. However, I could maybe do that dual-boot on my flash drive using 
Slax on one of the partitions, but let me get my desktop set up first.
