Zenwalk Linux

Zenwalk Linux was originally based on Slackware and called Minislack; it has become different over time from Slackware but still maintains binary compatbility with Slackware's packages, meaning that you can install software from Slackware's package repositories. Zenwalk aims to be slim and fast with only one application per task and with a focus on graphical desktop and multimedia usage.
