Firefox 3 Beta Shows Promise

,----[ Quote ]
| The group that makes the Firefox browser Mozilla has released a preview of 
| the next Firefox 3 Web browser that aims to boosts security, speed, and ease 
| of use. The release is tad delayed than originally expected, but from the 
| early looks of the Firefox 3 beta 1 browser it was worth the wait   


Zenwalk Live 4.8

,----[ Quote ]
| One of my favorites, ZenWalk, just released Zenwalk 4.8 Live. Both Zenwalk 
| and Vector — the top Xfce-based, Slackware-derived distributions — are very 
| good, but I like the way Zenwalk looks and works just that much better.

Zenwalk 4.8 Review

| I am just in love with xfce based distributions; they are fast, simple and 
| elegant and Zenwalk is no exception. It has a really good control center and 
| out-of-box multimedia support.

| A quick look at the new Zenwalk 4.8 released on October 6 2007. This 
| Slackware based Linux OS was a pleasure to look at and test. Several images 
| guide you through the install and a short flash video at the end to show you 
| Zenwalk 4.8 in action.   


Getting more comfortable with Zenwalk ... and a touchy touchpad

| So all in all, I'm enjoying the $0 Laptop and Zenwalk. And my touchpad 
| training.

| at the result of the2007  Desktop Linux Survey. In this article I will show 
| you lots of interesting screenshots of  
| Zenwalk 4.8 Beta.


Releases : Zenwalk Live 4.6 Released!

,----[ Quote ]
| The most important change in 4.6 at the system level is the new tool chain, 
| including Binutils-2.17.50, GCC 4.1 and Glibc-2.5, which hve been fully 
| implemented. All libraries and applications have been compiled with this 
| modern tool chain and benefit from the latest evolutions in GNU software and 
| resulting binary optimizations.    


Releases : Zenwalk 4.6 is out

| The Zenwalk Team is happy to announce that Zenwalk 4.6 (code name 
| "Red Pill") has been released.


Zenwalk 4.2 -- There isn't anything mini about this distro anymore

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall: I am honestly pleased to give this package a 4 Pennie review.
| The simplicity of the system, the functionality and way that Zenwalk
| keeps everything basic. There is no fluff to the system, there is no
| monster 4 Gig download, no extra packages that you will never, ever
| need. The team in France really has a gem. It does need a little
| polish on the installation, especially on the networking, which does
| require some insite, which hopefully we helped you understand. Now,
| it is hard to capture everything you need, so please look to the
| forums or here if you need additional support there. Other than that,
| the installation is pretty easy to follow given that it is a text
| based installer for a slackware system.


Zenwalk 4.6 Beta 1 Screenshot Tour

,----[ Quote ]
| Main changes in this release are: kernel 2.6.21, with KVM support;
| a new toolchain, featuring a new glibc and GCC so that most
| packages have been rebuilt; Xfce 4.4.1 with new plugins and
| system notifications (for example, udev now send user notifications
| about hotplugged devices); Firefox, Thunderbird; 
| many improvements in the base system and admin tools. You will
| notice that Zenwalk installer has been simplified a lot, making 
| it one of the simplest setups available in the GNU/Linux world...


Zenwalk Live 4.4.1

,----[ Quote ]
| Making up Zenwalk Live 4.4.1 is the new ZenPanel utility for
| system administration, a complete development suite, and a
| variety of new games such as Mega Mario, Frozen Bubble, and
| LBreakout. Zenwalk Live is a LiveCD distribution that ships
| with Xfce 4 so that you may try out Zenwalk without even
| touching your hard drive.
