Did a little research and you are right there isn't much literature on it. according to softpedia it is a Gentoo (Slax) based distribution which includes support for the Intel GMA500 GPU (which is infamous for having been popular and poorly supported by linux distros - I should know, I have a computer with it ). Here is the softpedia article which includes some screenshots as well:
Download PixieLive 1.0 for Linux - Linux Live for Netbooks - Softpedia
Based on what I can see of those pics, It looks like the the desktop environment is LXDE, which is really light and perfectly suited for Netbooks (which is another of this distros targets).
I also found an old post in the Slax forum which is an early preview of this distro and tracks it's development. It also give you the contact for the developer:
