Zencafe 3.2 RC1

A Linux distribution for Internet Café, based on the Zenwalk and Slackware OSes.
Zencafe is an open source and freely distributed operating system designed with Internet Café (also known as Cybercafé) in mind. It is derived from the Zenwalk Linux distribution, which in turn is based on the famous Slackware OS.

It can only be installed on a local drive

The distribution can be downloaded as an installable-only ISO image that fits perfectly on a CD disc or a USB flash drive of 1GB or higher capacity. It has been engineered to run on computers supporting either the 32-bit or 64-bit instruction set architectures.

Boot menu à la Zenwalk

The boot menu of the ISO image is identical with the one of the Zenwalk Linux distribution. It even uses its logo. From there, the user can just press the Enter key to start the installation process or pass extra parameters to the kernel in case he or she has certain hardware components that are not recognized by the default kernel. Press the F2 key at the boot prompt for a complete list of options.

It is easy to install, takes approximately 5 minutes

The Zencafe operating system is easy to install. It take approximately 5 minutes to deploy the distribution on a decent computer with a 32-bit or 64-bit processor running at 2GHz and 1GB of system memory (RAM). The installer will require you to select a keyboard map, partition the disk, select the target device, install the packages and a bootloader.

Uses the Xfce desktop environment and includes a great software bundle

The best feature of the distribution is the Xfce desktop environment, which looks traditional and runs fast on computers with old and semi-old hardware components. Among the pre-installed applications, we can mention the LibreOffice office suite, GIMP image editor, Mozilla Firefox web browser, Transmission torrent downloader and gFTP file transfer client.
