Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

"But there's no denying that it's stripped down and is not really aimed at the "2-gig + x2 cpu" crowd."

No. Zenwalk is really aimed at modern hardware. The fact that it is so fast makes it a good choice for relatively old hardware as well. I don't think there's anything stripped down about Zenwalk anyway. BTW, I'm running Zenwalk on my Core2Duo 1.6GHz/1GB RAM laptop and it feels amazingly fast.

Most people seem to think that if you have a modern high-spec PC you'd better run something bloated on it. Running something as fast as Zenwalk gives a real feeling on what your hardware can really do. The author of the article has realized that.
