Pierrick Le Brun announced earlier today the immediate availability of the Zenwalk Linux 6.0 Live CD Edition. Being based on the standard version of the Zenwalk Linux distribution, the Live CD edition is actually a replica of the main edition, except for the fact that it can be run directly from the CD. Zenwalk Linux 6.0 Live CD also includes all the latest security updates and bugfixes that were released since the announcement for Zenwalk 6.0, back in March 2009.
"Our native utilities LiloFix & LiveClone have been entirely rewritten with Glade/Python and new functionalities have been added to LiveClone, which will now enable you not only to generate your own customized LiveCD, but also your own customized – or standard Zenwalk – Live USB key, with – or without – persistent changes. This will come in very handy for those of you who must use diversified computer access & wish to retain the same environment – along with your own work projects – in any of the computers you happen to use without having to install anything. Simply boot on your own customized Zenwalk Live USB key from anywhere & from any machine & you will be... at home!" - said Pierrick Le Brun in the official release announcement.
As the main release, Zenwalk 6.0 GNOME edition features a modified version of OpenOffice.org 3.0.1, making it more lightweight and better optimized. The suite comes with the Writer, Calc, Impress and Draw applications, while Math and Database can be installed by downloading the openoffice-extra package.
