Zenwalk 8.0 is another release that prides itself on speed. Today's 8.0 beta announcement reads, "Zenwalk boots in a few seconds, provides 1 application per task, and considering that it features best of breed modern applications and desktop environment : it's very, very fast !!!! (it flies on my wife's and son's 10 years old 2GB AMD Athlon 64 , and of course it's even more spectacular on my AMD Phenom Black Edition hexacore 3.2GHz - 8GB RAM - 2TB SSD :p)."
