When the walkin' gets tough, the Zen get walkin'

After a rather long hiatus, which made many Linux users uneasy, today I read the announcement that Zenwalk, the Slackware-based Linux distro, is back.

How could I forget a system that made me fail so miserably first, but taught me a great deal about Linux later?

Hyperion made the official announcement of Zenwalk 7.4 beta 1:


Zenwalk 7.4 BETA is ready for testing.

In this release you will find :

    LibreOffice 4.1.1
    Gimp 2.8.6
    XFCE 4.12GIT
    Thunderbird 24.1.0
    Firefox 25.0.1
    Kernel 3.10.20 with performance tweaks

Several applications of previous Zenwalks have been replaced : Mplayer is now the multimedia player (instead of Totem), Lxdm is the display manager (instead of GDM), Xfburn is the CD:DVD burner (instead of Brasero), Geeqie is now the image viewer.

Great!  Downloading time!!
