Slackware, Slax I was interested to see how Zenwalk differs from Slackware, and after reading on their web site that version 2.01 is 'the biggest jump in Zenwalk evolution since the beginning of the project', I wanted to see how far Zenwalk has come since it was reviewed here as MiniSlack.

I tried it but to my surprise, not even nano was installed, which forced me to use vi* which I have no idea how to control. :- Also, during the installation I chose to use a different screen font using 50 lines, but somehow that wasn't used when switching virtual terminal, which made half of the text not visible on screen, making the latest command not visible!

To top that, there's no /etc/init.d/* scripts to turn off GDM or whaveter graphical boot program they're using (I thought /etc/init.d scripts were more or less a Linux standard, having seen it in just about every other distro I've tested), so I had to kill the x client repeatedly in order to get 2 new minutes of editing. I tried the obvious "killall -9 gdm", "... xdm", "... kdm", but none were running.

No, this distro is definitely not for me.
