First Look at Zenwalk Linux 5.0-Beta

,----[ Quote ]
| Zenwalk is a Slackware-based Linux distribution designed to be slim, fast,
| complete and beautiful. It provides the latest stable versions for the
| included software and it’s optimized for high performance. It’s not bloated
| like most other distributions as it only provides one application for each
| task, but at the same time, it’s ready for common daily tasks out-of-the-box.

| Hey folks sorry for the delay, I seem to say that at the start of every
| article but the festive season has caused havoc lately. Anyway, I've been
| running Zenwalk 4.8 almost a week now and it did give some me more time to

| even been told it was good for new users. Could this be true? Here's how I
| got on in my week with Zenwalk... * *

,----[ Quote ]
| I've just downloaded and had a casual fool around with Firefox 3 Beta 2 and
| I'm told that it has approximately 900 improvements over the previous beta,

| Overall, it's another very impressive release that reflects the
| rapidly-growing robustness of Firefox 3. I've been using the nightly builds
| as my primary browser for some time, and I've been very happy with many of
| the new features. The quality of beta 1 was so high that it even managed to

Personas from Mozilla Labs give Firefox a sleek coat

,----[ Quote ]
| I probably won't use Personas much myself since I greatly prefer the
| unadulterated GTK look in Firefox 3, but the addon is very intriguing from a
| technical standpoint. The way that Personas takes Firefox's Internet
| capabilities and leverages theme to bring dynamic content to the Firefox *
| chrome layer is very creative and it reflects a lot of possibilities that I
| had never previously considered. * *

Update on the Firefox 3 Linux Theme

| went back to previous cool 2-3% usage. *
| Firefox 3 Beta 1 is expected within the next couple of weeks.
