Thumbs up for the Zenwalk 5 Linux distribution...
The Zenwalk 5.0 Beta ISO is less than 500MB in size, while including a number of full-featured desktop applications. In place of OpenOffice.org, AbiWord and Gnumeric are employed for word processing and spreadsheet needs. IceWeasel and IceDove are used in place of Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird, respectively. For multimedia needs, Zenwalk ships with both G-MPlayer and Mplayer while also included is streamtuner (a steam directory browser) and asunder (though not as nice as GNOME's Sound Juicer) for ripping audio CDs.
