Zenwalk : The New Distribution

Zenwalk Linux (formerly Minislack) is a Slackware-based GNU/Linux operating system with a goal of being slim and fast by using only one application per task and with focus on graphical desktop and multimedia usage.

Zenwalk features the latest Linux technology along with a complete programming environment and libraries to provide an ideal platform for application programmers. Zenwalk's modular approach also provides a simple way to convert Zenwalk Linux into a finely-tuned modern server (e.g. LAMP, messaging, file sharing).

Zenwalk GNU/Linux can run on any modern or semi-old computer (Zenwalk is optimized for the i686 instruction set, but backward compatible with i486). These are the minimal hardware requirements to run Zenwalk in Xwindow mode, with correct performance (some lower configs work - ie : PII - , but might be slow) :
  •     Pentium III class processor
  •     256 Mb RAM
  •     4Gb HDD
There are five editions of Zenwalk GNU/Linux "

1. Standard Edition
Zenwalk's Standard Edition is a complete GNU/Linux operating system for both Desktops and Laptop/Notebook systems but is also easily customizable for use in servers and multimedia centers.
