Zencafe logo The Zencafe developers have released version 2.2 of their Linux distribution designed specifically for internet cafés. Zencafe includes a built-in, "Deep Freeze like" auto-recovery tool and various specialised internet café applications, such as software for billing and system management.

The Indonesian distribution is based on the latest release of Zenwalk Linux and the Linux kernel. It features an improved installer and a number of package updates, such as version 3.2.1 of the office suite. Mozilla's Firefox web browser and the Pidgin instant messenger application are also included.

By default Zencafe uses the light-weight Xfce desktop, however the "Lite" edition designed for older and slower systems, installs the IceWM window manager. Zencafe 2.2 requires at least a Pentium III class processor, 128 MB of RAM and 4 GB of hard disk space.

Additional information about the release can be found in the official release announcement. Zencafe 2.2 is available to download as a 595 MB ISO image file.
