Zenwalk is a GNU/Linux operating system. Zenwalk is designed with the following objectives:
- Be simple and fast
- Provide one application for one task on the install CD
- Be a complete development/desktop environment
- Be small so that it can be distributed on a single CD
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· After several months of rescheduling we think it's time to let this new jet fly. Zenwalk 7.2 is loyal to it's design : providing 1 application per task, everything needed to work / play / code / create, in a single 700MB ISO image, through a 10 minutes automatic install process on any recent computer. Zenwalk is aimed to be really fast in the club of "modern desktop" Linux systems, due to many optimizations at different levels : kernel, applications, desktop. The challenge that we faced, and made them delay the 7.2 release date, was to achieve 100% Slackware Linux compatibility while keeping most of the optimizations that were introduced during the last years of development, started in 2004. Zenwalk 7.2 runs on kernel 3.4.8 with BFS scheduler. The Zenwalk desktop is based on the XFCE 4.10 / GTK 2.24.10/3.4.4 team, with unique look and feel and perfect ergonomic integration of the application set : Libreoffice 3.6.2, Firefox/Thunderbird 15.0.1, Gimp 2.8.2 and much more... The Netpkg package manager has been improved with multiple mirrors support and better performance.
