Great team of developers and excellent forum support on their official website.

Since its stripped down, it is fast and you don't have to deal with bloatware.
Pro Easy installer
Con Install instructions are in French
When first booting SliTaz from a USB or from a Live CD, the installation instructions are in French.
Con Not much variety as to available applications
SliTaz does not have as many applications in its repositories as the bigger distros such as Ubuntu.
Con Same Cons that apply for Arch Linux
Since it is based on Arch, it is harder to install and can easily break.
Con Kalu needs a little refinement
I applaud the developers to carry on the legacy of Antergos, the only niggling thing that I would appreciate is, while it's nice to see news about updates; my opinion is that once you dismiss the notifications they STAY dismissed. And just clicking on the icon brings kalu brings it to the foreground. Or have the functionality of turning off the news altogether would be well received. Good distro.
