Zenwalk

Zenwalk LinuxAbout Zenwalk Linux

Zenwalk Linux is a lightweight desktop oriented originally based on the Slackware distribution.  It aims to be fast and user friendly. Zenwalk comes with many specialized tools, designed for all types of users.

There are four versions of Zenwalk available to download:

Zenwalk - (469 MB ISO) - Installs to the hard disk and is intended for mainstream desktop use

Zenwalk Core - (230MB ISO) - A purely console distribution (i.e no X server)

Zenserver - (263MB ISO) - A server based distribution using Lighttpd as the default webserver, security minded permissions, console based, kernel patched with the GRSecurity patch.

ZenLive - (473MB ISO) -  A LiveCD which replicates a Zenwalk Standard installation while at the same time adds many other features.  It focuses on multimedia, gaming, networking, development, and system tools. 

Both Zenwalk and ZenLive use Xfce as the default desktop environment, with neither the popular but heavyweight GNOME nor KDE environments being installed by default.  However, there is an extra repository available which does include KDE 3.5.6 as well as OpenOffice.
