[News] ZenWalk Provides Xfce Temptation

Hash: SHA1

ZenWalk — I'm tempted

,----[ Quote ]
| When I first started using Linux, ZenWalk was one of the first systems I 
| played around with. I had a nice install at one point, and that particular 
| machine would install the old version of ZenWalk at the time but not whatever 
| the new version happened to be. As a last-ditch effort/experiment, I tried to 
| upgrade the old system, but since ZenWalk pretty much stopped supporting my 
| old system but kept everything in the same repository, the upgrade pretty 
| much bricked the install.      
| Still, ZenWalk is a super-fast system with excellent hardware detection and 
| less geeky pain than in Slackware, upon which Zenwalk is based. 



Review: Zenwalk 5.2

,----[ Quote ]
| Somewhere along the line I got into my head that Slackware was a distro that
| involved having to compile everything. From what I can gather from Wikipedia,
| The Slackware Website, and some comments to my Gentoo post, I was wrong.
| Gentoo apparently uses packages...

| This isn’t a review, just a suggestion that if you haven’t already tried
| Zenwalk then maybe you should give it a spin. Who knows, you might, like me,
| find that it’s the best OS you’ve ever used, bar none.


The 5 Best Xfce - based Linux Distributions

,----[ Quote ]
| I’ve been talking a lot about window managers and desktop environments.
| Nowadays most major distros simply go for KDE or GNOME, but it is not very
| common to see a distro use XFCE. This is a very sleek and useful little
| desktop environment, which provides great GTK compatibility and increases
| speed. Today we’ll take a quick look at which distros you should choose if
| you wish to have an instant Xfce experience.

| The second Beta was delayed for 2 weeks, but it was worth it.
| every feature we made a freeze-exception for has made it into this release.
| This means a lot of bugs have been fixed this time aswell:
| - The keyboard-shortcuts for xfwm4 can be configured again. (now with
|   conflict handling)
| - Session-management has been improved, apps will now be automatically
|   restarted if they die unexpected
| - It is now possible to set the desktop wallpaper from the thunar right-click
|   menu


Xfce 4.4.3 released

,----[ Quote ]
| Just because we're gearing up to release 4.6.0, it doesn't mean we've
| forgotten the 4.4 branch. A bunch of bug fixes had accumulated since 4.4.2,
| so we have a new release for you.


Xfce 4.6 ALPHA ('Pinkie') released

,----[ Quote ]
| After about 18 months of development, we are pleased to announce the release
| of Xfce 4.6 ALPHA, codename 'Pinkie'.
| Xfce 4.6 is going to be the next major release of the Xfce desktop
| environment. The previous release was 4.4 with the last bugfix release being
| 4.4.2 released in December 2007.


Xfce 4.6 Alpha Available With New Features

,----[ Quote ]
| The final release of the Xfce 4.6 desktop environment was supposed to come
| this month, but instead the first alpha release has finally come about. Xfce
| 4.4 was originally released in January of 2007, so it has been quite a while
| since this lightweight desktop environment has received a major update. This
| release though does introduce a fair number of changes, which we have covered
| in this article.

| Today is a happy day for Linux Mint fans as the developers of one of the most
| popular Linux distributions decided to please us with yet another release. I
| am speaking about Linux Mint 5 Elyssa XFCE, which introduces various
| improvements in performance,  appearance and desktop configuration.


Mint Linux mints new distro release

,----[ Quote ]
| Free software teetotalers may be interested in a new radio interview with
| Richard M. Stallman. Meanwhile, those willing to intermingle free and
| proprietary bits can rejoice in the release of version 5.0 of Linux Mint,
| aimed at creating a more multimedia-rich, consumer-friendly version of
| Ubuntu.


Linux Mint 5 XFCE released

,----[ Quote ]
| The Mint developers today announced the release of Mint 5 XFCE Community
| Edition.
| Codenamed Elyssa, Mint 5 XFCE includes a long list of improvements for almost
| all applications. “XFCE’s mintDesktop has a new layout and some more options
| to customise your desktop,” the team said in its announcement.


New Xfce beta focuses on usability

,----[ Quote ]
| Not only do the dozens of small changes add up to a level of usability that
| users at any level of experience can value, but the 4.6 beta is even faster
| than 4.4. Individually, most of the changes in 4.6 may be minor, but the
| overall result promises to be one of the best user experiences available on
| the free desktop.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
