What is the difference between Speakup and Zipspeak?

Speakup is the screenreader for the linux console.  Zipspeak is a 
linux distribution (actually a modified version of zipslack, which is 
constructed from slackware) that includes speakup.  I wouldn't 
recommend zipspeak anymore...it's about 5 years out of date and will 
only work on a fat32 filesystem.

We use Linux for all our mission-critical applications.  Having the source code
means that we are not held hostage by anyone's support department.
