Zenwalk Linux 6.4 Is Finally Here

,----[ Quote ]
| Jean-Philippe Guillemin proudly announced 
| last evening, May 27th, the immediate 
| availability of the Zenwalk Linux 6.4 
| operating system. The new release is 
| powered by Linux kernel, with the 
| BFS scheduler, and the new XFCE 4.6.2 
| desktop environment. Cutting-edge packages 
| and overall performance improvements are 
| also present in this new release of the 
| lightweight Zenwalk Linux distribution.


Zenwalk 6.4 is ready !

| Zenwalk 6.4 provides many enhancements at 
| system and application levels, while 
| confirming the maturity and features 
| stability of Zenwalk. The brand new 
| kernel is featuring the new BFS 
| scheduler, designed for the best desktop 
| interactivity on multi-core CPUs while 
| taking the most of lower spec machines. 
| You'll notice better responsiveness of 
| graphical applications, better realtime 
| performance of sound applications (very low 
| latency), and efficiency of niced commands 
| (compilation tasks can really be niced in a 
| way they don't disturb other applications). 
| Like its predecessor, Zenwalk 6.4 features 
| EXT4 as main filesystem, and latest 
| versions of most applications and desktop 
| environments.



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).

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
