Well...I must say that this the best Zenwalk release so far. I can tell right away that this baby runs a lot faaaaaaaastttttter than Fedora, Ubuntu or any other distro on my laptop.

There are several things that can be improved and they have been mentioned already in the Zenwalk forums.
XFCE works beautifully as always.

Fedora, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE are awesome distros too but are a heavier for me. If you are looking for something lighter, this is the one.

But overall, it is the fastest distro so far, boot up time takes about 20 seconds ony laptop instead of 45 sec, it is simple and snappier.

Honestly, for me, the best linux distro at this moment.
