Re: Zenwalk experiences?
Very easily. I would admit that Zenwalk does not make having of other window managers or certain things as easily as Ubuntu or pclinuxos. I loved it for a while and still consider it one of the fastest distros that is feature rich. I am back to trying out Ubuntu feisty and pclinuxos2007. These are very easy to use distro. Sam linux is nice as well and like Zenwalk is xfce 4.4 based. However, Zenwalk just flies much faster.
Granted you have to install flash, and any other thing you may need.
If you've never used Zenwalk much before, you may be blown away once you get familiar to its simplistic way of functioning.
It also has a great gui and cli package manager for installing softwares similar to apt-get or synaptic from Ubuntu or other debian-based distros.
It is slackware made very simple. I can do samba, amarok, burn dvd or CDs, create documents. Playing games., and everything.
The system is not bloated. However, you may complain on things like auto-mounting. When I put a DVD, I expect it to pop open a prompt like in windows or ubuntu or many others that a media has been detected. Zenwalk just waits for you to click on the media icon to launch it. No real big deal though.
Beryl ran beautifully on it last time I used it. Beryl runs faster on Zenwalk than on Ubuntu. Give it a try. But Ubuntu makes having apps ridiculously easier.
My favorite distros: Archbang / Manjaro / Sabayon
