    What's this weed & what are some good products to eradicate it?

    3-way with a quality wetting agent will work.

    You are in luck. Carfentrazone (as Quicksilver) works just super fast. In my experience in hot weather purslane it turned black in 8 hours. Its a summer annual--arises when temp hits about 85, slow below 45, killed by frost. Reseeds itself, of course.

    Also...if you don't spray...its edible. It tastes like lettuce--only better.

    I tend to see this more on edges and sidewalk cracks. Like Riggle mention this can procreate itself from seed and even clippings. I prefer to spray it as opposed to hitting with line trimmer.
