Mini-Review: Zenwalk 6.2

,----[ Quote ]
| I looked at Zenwalk 6.0 back in June and 
| Zenwalk 6.2 is now out.  Iâm going to do a 
| mini-review just comparing 6.0 to 6.2 to see 
| what has changed.  This may end up being very 
| short if itâs mostly the same.  One difference 
| right away is that itâs using ext4 instead of 
| XFS.  The install was basically the same.
| [...]
| So, what do I think about Zenwalk 6.2?  
| Basically, as the version number indicates, 
| itâs an incremental update on Zenwalk 6.0. 


Mandriva 2010 issue of Linux Identity

| For those wondering, working on magazine 
| content takes a lot longer than writing a 
| blog, but is rewarding and worth while to me, 
| as I want to support the community, which I 
| feel involves all, including beginners that 
| like to buy magazines with DVDs attached. :) I 
| tried to cover things like installing 
| Mandriva, setting up dual boot ( Transfug 
| drake does need some improvement ), 
| personalization of the desktop, multi users 
| including parental controls and installing new 
| applications.

| friendly packaging for its latest
| distribution: Mandriva linux 2010.
| At a time when bringing in sustainable
| development policies is imperative for
| business, Mandriva has gone for entirely
| recyclable packaging for its latest
| distribution to meet customer wishes.


Review: Zenwalk 6.2

,----[ Quote ]
| Conclusions:  This is hands-down one of the
| most user-friendly distributions I've tried.
| This long-term test drive had a few relatively
| minor bugs, and they were far outweighed by
| Zenwalk's overall friendliness and ease of use.
| The distro is bright and well-designed, and is
| backed by strong documentation and a newby-
| friendly community.  In my installation it had
| a very high âjust workedâ factor, although
| obviously individual results may vary for other
| users and machines.   If XFCE isn't your cup of
| tea, Zenwalk is also available in a GNOME
| version.


Zenwalk Core 6.2 is ready

| Like the plain 6.2, Zenwalk Core 6.2 is
| mostly new code (nearly all packages have
| been updated), and the base system has been
| slightly modified (EXT4, kernel
| The switch to LZMA for package compression
| has reduced the overall size of the ISO image
| (170MB).
