VectorLinux - The Pefect Installation and Setup

,----[ Quote ]
| The  VectorLinux Website is promising: “Speed, performance, stability -- 
| these are attributes that set VectorLinux apart in the crowded field of Linux 
| distributions. VectorLinux is a lighterweight, fast, Linux operating system 
| for Intel-AMD x86 compatible systems and is based upon Slackware, one of the 
| original Linux distributions…”    
| Linux-Tip was testing the installation and usage of version 5.8 (Standard 
| Gold). 


Many screenshots and plenty of details.

Review: Vector Linux 5.8 Standard Edition 

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall I'd rate Vector Linux as a very high quality distribution that easily 
| gains a spot on my short list of highly recommended distributions for new and 
| experienced users.  I give the developers huge props for creating a 
| distribution that takes one of the most powerful and complex distributions in 
| the world (Slackware) and turns it into a new users dream desktop.  This is 
| even a distro I would feel comfortable giving to my own mom, and that's 
| saying a lot.

VectorLinux SOHO: A better Slackware than Slackware

,----[ Quote ]
| I've always admired VectorLinux for offering what I consider a 
| better Slackware than Slackware. It's beautiful and functional,
| and would work well for me in my home office. On the desktop it
| is an excellent distribution with no real problems.

| Conclusion
| Once you have Vector Linux installed, configured, and customized
| to your needs it?s an absolute pleasure to run. It?s fast and sleek
| and well thought out. Some features, such as those for managing
| WiFi connections and removable hardware, are absolutely second
| to none...


First look at VectorLinux 5.8 SOHO

,----[ Quote ]
| VectorLinux is a distro that I tested only a couple of times before,
| but I was very impressed with the system. Then, as now, it was a
| pretty, complete, and stable alternative to heavier or more
| complicated offerings. It dresses up Slackware and adds needed
| functionality, yet remains true to the Slackware tradition.

| I would like to extend my thanks and complements to everyone involved in
| making Vector Linux adaptable, flexible and user friendly. My Lions Club 
| sponsors a Computers for Kids program where we refurbish surplus computers, 
| load Vector as the OS

| I don't claim to be a Linux expert or evangelist. We are just trying
| to give underprivileged kids in our community access to world class
| technology and a level playing field.
