Zenwalk 6.0

Zenwalk 6.0A lightweight linux distribution based on Slackware Linux.

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 :

· This release comes with the biggest changelog in the history of the project to offer many new features and optimizations. We spent the 2 last month polishing the desktop around the new Xfce 4.6, making sure that this brand new version is well integrated into Zenwalk 6.0. We also replaced GNOME Office with our lightweight and optimized version of OpenOffice.org 3.0.1, split in two packages. The Totem movie player is also part of the adventure, replacing MPlayer, which is still available from our growing package repository.

Jean-Philippe Guillemin, founder of Zenwalk Linux distribution, announced, two days ago (March 7th), the release of Zenwalk Linux 6.0. One of the most important updated components is Xfce, the default desktop environment, which recently reached version 4.6.

"We spent the 2 last months polishing the desktop around the new Xfce 4.6, making sure that this brand new version is well integrated into Zenwalk 6.0. As usual, our challenge was to provide latest versions of the most modern applications as well as kernel, while keeping the usual level of simplicity and performance that makes Zenwalk special in the GNU/Linux world.", said Jean-Philippe Guillemin in the official release announcement.

The default GNOME office applications (Abiword, Gnumeric, etc.) were replaced by a modified lightweight version of OpenOffice 3.0.1. The suite was split in a base package (Writer, Calc, Impress and Draw) and an "extra" package (Math, Database, Java support). The first one is included in the ISO while the extra package can be downloaded through Netpkg.

Highlights of Zenwalk Linux 6.0 :

· Linux Kernel with gspca brings support for many USB webcams;
