Tiny Zenwalk 5.0 packs a big punch

,----[ Quote ]
| For a single-CD distro, Zenwalk 5.0 packs quite a punch. It's light, it's
| zippy, and it has all the everyday applications a desktop user would need. It
| still isn't the best distro for users who shun the command line. But since
| I'm used to the command line after years of running Linux, Zenwalk 5.0 is
| staying on all my machines.

First look at Zenwalk Linux 5.0

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm really impressed with the progress Zenwalk Linux has made in the last 18
| months. It has become a great looking system that works really well overall.
| It's full-featured while remaining light and fast. I don't see any reason why
| even a newcomer couldn't enjoy running this system as is, but I'd really like
| to see Nano replace Vi for them. In addition, I wish the developers of
| Zenwalk could look into including one of the proprietary graphic driver
| installers used by other systems. If anyone needs any help, there's a Zenwalk
| Manual online as well as a Wiki and Forum. I personally only encountered a
| few little niggles here and there, but as a whole Zenwalk was a pleasure to
| use. Congratulations to the development team for such a nice release. * * * *

Zenwalk 5.0 - Something More, Something New.

,----[ Quote ]
| This is another great release from the Zenwalk Linux team. The developers
| have obviously listened to the requests or even demands from its users or
| fence-sitters. Zenwalk Linux 5.0 is much more WiFi-friendly now, at least
| with Intel Pro Wireless and Intel Wireless WiFi Link chipsets. I am also very
| delighted to have found so many bleeding edge packages in the Zenwalk Linux
| official repositories, whether it's in the current or snapshot directories. * *

Zenwalk 5.0: Slackware Made Somewhat Easier

,----[ Quote ]
| I tried Zenwalk back at v3.0 and liked it. It was a fast, sleek, minimalist
| OS based on Slackware, but supposedly only aimed at more technically advanced
| users. With the release of v5.0, I decided to try it again and see how far
| it's come in the past year or so. *
| For those who aren't familiar with Zenwalk, here's a brief update: Zenwalk is
| a one-CD installation of Slackware which has a philosophy of only including
| one program for each task. It was originally called MiniSlack in the pre-1.0
| days when it shipped with WindowMaker as the desktop. Now, it's based on
| XFCE, supposedly has much better hardware detection, and is a more complete
| desktop overall. It's still based loosely on Slackware, using Slackware's
| packaging system and using LILO instead of GRUB as the boot loader, but it's
| a more complete OS out of the box, despite being smaller. * * *

Zenwalk 5: A Distribution Worth Trying

,----[ Quote ]
| After using Zenwalk 5.0 Beta quite a bit since its release, we haven't hit
| any show-stopping bugs and have found these improvements to be quite modest.
| If you are new to Linux or just looking to try out a different distribution,
| we feel that Zenwalk 5.0 is a great lightweight Linux desktop worth trying
| out. * *

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. * *
