SlackEX 14.1 64 bit uses kernel 3.18.1-x86_64-exton and KDE 4.10.5. SlackEX is based on Slackware 14.1, released 131107. Kernel 3.18.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20141216.
INSTALL TO HARD DRIVE
The system can easily be installed to hard drive (during a live session) using a setup program/script. You can then use Grub2 as bootloader if you want.
SlackEX must be installed to a USB stick in Windows XP/Vista/7/8.1 or in a Linux system. Instruction: http://slackex.exton.net/slackex-14.1-usb.html
Almost all Slackware 14.1 standard packages are preinstalled in SlackEX 14.1. Also VirtualBox 4.3.20 (so that you can run Windows 8.1 in SlackEX if you feel like it). Study the full package LIST: http://slackex.exton.net/slackex-14.1-installed-packages-141220.txt
When you have installed SlackEX on a USB stick all system changes (made by you) will be saved directly (automatically) to the stick. Persistence!
