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.

Sorry to hear you're disappointed, but I laid it out as I saw it. I made it pretty clear where I was coming from, as well as how things went. I summed it up by saying the distro was tight, which, for my generation, was high praise.

Since I wrote the review I replaced my Ubuntu installation on my centrino-based laptop with Zenwalk. It's much nicer, actually, because it is so tight and tightly focused. With speedstep on I'm running at 600 Mhz most of the time, and I can really feel the difference. Of course, it took more work.

I think the comments show it's a mixed bag, which is waht you can say about pretty much every distro.

Thanks for the feedback.
